A really fun and simple Art Journal page for you today. Sometimes it’s really nice to use just paint and some markers in your journal pages and make them quick and easy.

We’re back with the color chaos travelling art journal today and this is the turn of Gold, belonging to Vanessa.

I know some people really don’t like them but I have to say I adore them and love to try and think of new ways to use them. I wanted to make a special piece for a special young lady who’s gone through some rough times medically and was… Read more »
