Visual Journaling Fun!

I hope that you all had the best Thanksgiving holiday. We stayed at home this year and it was so great. My kids enjoyed helping us cook an incredible meal (that we all ate way too much of). It was so nice spending time with each other and just hanging out. Since we were at home, I had 4 days of studio time where I could just run up whenever an idea hit me, and play for a bit, so that was especially nice.
I am doing a demo at Jerry's this coming Sunday, December 5th with these new Strathmore Visual Journals, so I have been having a great time playing with them. Since the covers are hard, I have also been playing around with impasto gel and modeling compound through a stencil to decorate the cover before I actually begin.


Here is a bit of what I have been playing with so far....
I hope you have the greatest day ever.
Until next time,
Ophelia

I started to leave a message here the other day and got interrupted. I have not been able to find those journals, where did you get them?

Have a great time on Sunday at the workshop. Your journal pages are always a visual treat.
