I am still trying to group all phases of each of my art journal backgrounds into folders on my computer, so that I can show you the evolution of each page. So, I don't have that ready but I can share a few of my latest supply finds and renewed crushes that I have been working with lately.
If you need to glue 2 pages together in a composition book (or do that to an entire book), let me recommend this stuff:
After about a year of seeing these art prop cones and making eye rolls because I could soooo use some old free recycled thang instead but I never did, I finally relented and ordered some.
My trusty gallon pail of gesso needs a smaller off-load container and old pimento cheese containers work perfectly.
I'd been subconsciously staying away from the gesso when I learned that cleaning brushes out in the kitchen sink would clog up the pipes. But I finally learned how to do it without the sink.
I've been told that shampoo will work also, so I might try that once I run out of the pink soap.
