Ride into the Sunset



Art journaling is becoming quite a popular activity among members of the art community. Using mixed media techniques to express emotions or to record special events is a new way to "scrapbook." I would like to encourage you to give art journaling a try. Swing by the local thrift store and choose a hardcover book with a firm binding. Your next stop is the craft store to buy white Gesso. Gesso works as a primer. Open the book and prime a few pages. Once the primer is dry you are ready to roll. The sky is the limit. You can read more about this journal entry over on my blog: www.retrodolly.net
