Howdy and Welcome,
This week I've been under the weather (flu - with fever and other gross symptoms). So I'm still playing in my Art Journal for WOYWW. Making more layered backgrounds and still practicing image transfers using mag photos and gel medium.
This book is the new 'mixed-media book' from Strathmore I bought last year at Michaels - with a coupon. This book is advertised to be useful for wet media, but I'm not impressed. The pages were too thin for my purposes. So I glued 3 together to use as my substrates. The texture is fine, the pages were just too thin for the abuse I give paper in my art journals.

What books do you use for your Art Journals? Have you tried the Moleskine watercolor paper books? Love them - but not cheap! Soon I hope to make some books from scratch using watercolor paper from pads I've got around the studio.
Happy Valentine's Day, too. Since I'm sick and hubby works 6 days a week we plan to celebrate on the weekend. We exchanged cards and he gave me a a box of chocolate covered strawberries to cheer me up - they were tasty!
Thanks for stopping by. Would love for you to comment on this post - or any of my other posts - and become a Follower while you're here visiting. Here are more artists studios to visit for WOYWW!
