Tissue Paper Page Spread

To hide the sewing on the previous page, I tore up tissue paper and adhered it with gesso and medium, splattered blobs of gesso around, let it dry, and then painted it. It's kinda weird but cool. I like the peeks of orange and the touchable texture.

3-D Elements Galore

This spread has a piece of fabric previously pressed into thick acrylic paint. It is paired with a similarly-dipped acrylic leaf sewed onto burlap. I had used a toy sewing machine on this piece years and years ago. Some thin white bookbinding thread is used to sew the burlap to the page. The left blue section is gloss medium mixed with Cerulean Blue paint, with marks made while it was still wet.

Art Journal Spread

Some collage (old articles about writing), some more Lumiere metallic acrylic paints, some white gel pen and some journaling in this spread. I decided to flip the spread to portrait view when I added the grass above. I was thinking about my past dreams of being a writer were now fertile compost for my current artistic life and projects.

Glimmery Journal Spread

Trying to use up supplies, I tried some Lumiere metallic acrylic paints on this spread. In some sections, I scraped back in some areas for texture.

Art Journal Spread

Here's a spread in my "Lost & Found" art journal. I'm trying different media and trying to use 3-D elements also. This spread has light modeling paste, a piece of weaving mesh, and acrylic inks.

Currently, I'm using this one:
