Art Journaling.

One of my absolute favorite things to do is experimenting in my Art Journal.
It´s a fun way to play with color and layout. I like to have a couple of different sizes of journals to choose from. Sometimes you have a lot on your mind and need the space to create, or you just want to test out a new color combination and don´t need a big page.
I really like Moleskine Journals. I prefer the Watercolor or Sketchbook. They have nice thick paper that goes well with paint and other mixed media.
I "Gesso" (primer) my pages before starting and I always make sure that I have a couple of pages prepared ready to go.

Here I tried out an orange-green combination. Orange and red are new colors for me.
I have usually worked with blue-green and earth colors.
I used green to contrast and compliment the redness.

The girl in the picture is me , age 2. I like to think of this work as how I feel when I´m Art Journaling: Happy and Smiling.

I need to challenge myself with colors, because fun things do happen when you are experimenting!
