A month ago I was approached to do a review of a new planner line created by Workman Publishing and Pipsticks. I was given an option to choose one of three themed packages, and my choice was “for the Dreamer…”. This set was quoted to be perfect for the creative spirit.
I haven’t posted any pages from my art journal for over a month. I did some art journaling and doodling in June, but when July came I wasn’t very inspired and at the end of July due to some circumstances I had to pack all of my things. All of my art stuff is still packed. I did sneak out one journal and a handful of pens.
So here are some of my weirdly dimensional doodles in the park.
My first acrylic paints (already tried them and they are so smooth!) and I am almost done with my current art journal, so I purchased two. Once is very heavy thick paper perfect for mixed media (on the left), and the other is a sketchbook but is also suitable for light washes (on the right). And pens. More pens. And finally a white permanent marker that actually works! Sadly it is not a fine tip, but I am managing.
I also got glossy gel medium. Which is awesome but it is sooo sticky and disgusting when it gets on my fingers. Worse then glue 🙁
But I am very excited and I am already trying all of these 😀
