I’ve been doing a lot of drawing in my art journal recently. I have been using different kinds of Sharpie pens either on fresh pages or on pages that already had a few layers of paint left over from previous projects.
I’ve been sharing some of my surface design patterns on my Instagram feed and I will be blogging them at some point. But in the meantime here are a couple of pages that I haven’t posted to instagram as yet, they will be going up today or tomorrow!
They are both pages from my Junk Journals. For both of these pages I’ve used white water-based Sharpie paint pens over acrylic paint backgrounds. The two pages sit opposite each other in my journal but I decided not to do them as a double page spread even though they had the coordinating paint background with the lovely green punchinella texture.
It is more a two page series with a red theme I think and the white sketched motifs links the pages together.
Have you been keep your flyers for turning into Junk Journals? If you aren’t sure what I mean then you can learn more about my junk journals on my YouTube Channel or in my Reusing Flyers blog post from a couple of weeks ago.
What themes have you been working on in your art journals?
