Something totally new for me.

I have been looking at alot of Art Jounals and decided I wanted to make one, the pictures you see here are just the background pages, I did not post all of the pgs I have done, just a few. The first picture is of my cover, I haven't finnished it just yet, I will post later when I do. I used purples and wheat colors, if you look close yu can see the shapes of flowers and dragonflies under everything. I coated the top with Goldens light molding paste and chopped and smoothed it to give it lots of diminson. All of my pages were prepared using Liquitex Gesso. I did this for fun and really I am having a blast doing it. There are alot of different medias on these pages, I will list at end of post. I hope you enjoy looking at these few pages.
