Art Journal: Those Who Dream

Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become.”
John Ruskin

So I started working in my altered book art journal again!

In developing my watercolor/gouache workshops I got so immersed in those mediums that I neglected my beloved acrylics. Switching between mediums is something I highly recommend! Acrylic paint is intriguing, refreshing, challenging and full of wonder and yumminess. 

I like that you can layer the paints, so that you can cover up and completely change your pages at any time. You can even art journal over a completed art journal page. Yes. And I have. And you should. 

This spread has involved several iterations, so many that I can't remember what it was when I started this book in 2012! The ingredients include magazine clippings, a quote, Japanese papers, papers {happy mail from Sue} fabric tape, high flow acrylics, heavy body acrylics, neocolors, ephemera. And chocolate truffles.
