Sometimes I don't really finish a page for a couple of weeks and then other times I pull it all together in one session. It's really given me a new found sense of freedom in my art. Get stuck on one - move onto another. Love it!
I have a couple of journals that are smaller Moleskine and then a couple of these from Canson that are Mix media paper.
I first started out with the Canson journal and was just using "as is". Then I got the bright idea with the second one to pull out the pages from the wire and then I can put them back in place when finished. I usually like doing a two-page spread so that is why I didn't like having the uncovered gaps in the middle. With pulling out my pages and temporarily binding them on the back with blue, painter's tape, I can work them as a whole, then remove the tape and put it back in the binding.
I was experimenting with the Byzantia Jewel-tone paints a little on this single page. (See yesterday's post for a great retailer.)

I am planning to adhere this page onto the blue cover. It was a lot of fun putting in some of my own doodled leaves, and flowers and experimenting with Tim Holtz' Ideology Alphabet masks and also some new stencils I bought from Mary Beth Shaw, Stencil Girl. Check her site out too! There are some really fun designs and I can't wait to get more!
