Permission to Play


This weekend I thought I would start an Art Book/Journal. Somewhere to

work in without being concerned about the outcome.

I chose a small exercise book so that I could join a couple of

 pages together at a time then gesso them.

I want the pages to crinkle up as I work on them which is normally what you don't want.

A place to break all the 'rules'

A place where I can put all different mediums together without

having to think whether it will end up being archival or not. 

I started with a layer of Faber Castell Gel Sticks.

Added some of my own hand painted collage papers

Some splashes and marks made with acrylic and some old book paper 

and used gel sticks for the face.

I used a scrap of altered papers made with Citra-Solv and National Geographic pages.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. I like it when the pages crinkle too! She's so cute! ♥♥♥♥

  2. Gorgeous work, I love seeing the different stages. It's definitely good enough to frame!

  3. Oh what a wonderful intuitive piece!! All while playing!! Love it!
