Next I placed the contact paper strips onto a piece of watercolor paper which I had already prepared with text paper and gesso.
I then used Tim Holtz distressed stains and paints with stencils.
Once the ink and paint was dry I took the contact paper strips off to reveal the gessoed text.
I then completed my art journaling with a quote, ink highlights in white and black, and some text paper scallops.
I see great potential is using contact paper in art journaling.
What ordinary everyday things do you use in art journaling?
