Quite by accident the other day, I made an art discovery. I was putting gesso on some book pages to prepare them for making art and I didn't like the thickness of the gesso on one of the pages. So, I took an ungessoed page and put it on top of the gessoed page to "lift" some of the gesso off. I loved the result! I ended up with pages that had a distressed feel to them.
Art play is so much fun! And therapeutic! It is a mystery how playing with paint and paper and pens and glue can rejuvenate me and restore my energy and my outlook. No complaints though, I'm just going to keep going with the flow and enjoy my time art journaling.
