Art journal-4

Art journal-4A double page spread about some desires for 2016.  First step is to use mat medium to glue  down a printed paper of choice.  After drying, apply absorbent ground, and let it dry also.  Then, pencil in your design and watercolor it.  Lastly, add detail and text with permanent marker or pen.  FYI, the absorbent ground makes the surface a bit bumpy.  The perimeter is covered with a narrow strip of washi tape.  My pages buckled somewhat, so after they were dry I placed them under a pile of heavy books to flatten them.    The actual book that is being used for this art journal is a mixed media sketchbook.
