I’m really excited about today’s MidWeek Muse video. After a long stretch away from Art Journaling, I’m back playing, this time in some smaller format journals made by Global Art Materials.
As you’ll see in the video, working small means working fast, primarily because there’s less space to cover. The page spreads are just as rich and full as in my larger format journals, with the only compromise being the size of the pages.
If finding time to work in your art journal has become difficult, working small can help solve that problem. In the video I’ll show you a couple of background techniques that get color on the pages quickly and are dry just about the moment you’re finished adding the color. From there it’s layers of color and texture using stencils, stamps, and some other fun bits.
With options for journals with watercolor or drawing paper, different sizes and shapes, and cover colors in more than just black, the Global Art Materials journals are a perfect playground for art journaling. I added some of the mid-sized ones too, just in case some of you want to work larger.
