Don't look back

Hi everyone

This is my first ever attempt at an art journal page.   I've used a new ART INC journal which I think are a perfect size.   Inspired by this month's mood board, this is what I came up with.

I started by collaging on some random bits and pieces of paper using some gel medium.   I also wrote some thoughts on the background.   This wasn't meant to be legible, more as therapy as I knew I was going to cover them up.

I then scribbled on some Neocolor II crayons and activated them with a wet paint brush.

I then added a layer of gesso using a brayer (wiping some off with a baby wipe as I went along).

Then some acrylic paint, sometimes using my finger, sometimes some bubble wrap 

Then my focal image and some doodling with a few Posca pens.

Plenty of time to create something inspired by this month's moodboard.   Looking forward to seeing what you create,



  1. Love this Tracey I can see your new planner being filled in no time xxx

  2. Awesome love the colour and texture. Great to get some private thoughts out discreetly.
