The first test page in my new journal, the Canson Artist Series All Media one. This page has a watercolor background in sunny yellow, washi paper, asian newspaper and graphic from a brochure for the border, a car repair receipt from 1940 off to the side of center and then two prints from a hand carved styrofoam plate in gray gesso. The journaling part is documentation of the germination of the seeds planted in my garden and little doodle drawings of the adorable sproutlings. I love working on pages like this that build from the scrap pile, then sing with a little handmade goodness like a spontaneous print.
