Workshop 1 Recycled Journal Pages * Created by Strathmore Artist Papers

This is a great workshop which will keep me journalling even if it is not happening every day!
Highly recommended!
The idea of reusing old art work is appealing as sometimes I am a bit slow to conjure things out of thin air. My first go at the beginning of the background of the page was dull and murky so I had a second go, using some art nouveau style imagery I created for an swap. Resized, flipped and overlaid with floral elements from the cards, now I can add to the page with oil pastel, charcoal and graphite pencil overlaid with gesso...
Murky first attempt

I prefer this one - it is much brighter and livelier
