Week 2 of my art smash journal journey, so far so good, I’ve been experimenting with my art stash lately and tried different techniques I found at the net. Though I am not satisfied and happy with what came out of the pages, still I know I am on the right track to completing this first journal before year’s end.
Here’s a peak at the pages I did for the second week:
I’m not so good at acrylics and poster paint but this would do for a start, tried using watercolor paint, chalk pastels and color pencils for details. I know, I know, need more practice. The quote was from a speaker at our CLP seminar last week.
Here I used the magic circles stencil I found at the craft store, added some watercolor wash and detailed lines with color pencils, cut them up and pasted them randomly like flowers in bloom. I actually did not like this page and planned to do it over again yet I wanted to stick with the mantra of not repeating any page but instead build on it until it looks pretty enough to start with a new one.
For these next two pages, I tried doing collage, again some more practice…
Just a list of random likes at the moment (more journaling and handwriting here) and then some zen doodling.

Til next week. 🙂
