Six new Experimental Pages in my Artist Journals

experimental artist journal pages

My artist journal is a place where I try things out. Sometimes it is a concept. In these pages, however, is was experimenting with materials.

I had some new metallic watercolors, see the painting at the bottom where I experimented with them. Also in these pages I play with collaging different type of papers, layering paint in different ways, trying using a little perforating roller to make tiny white dots (second to last below), trying a new pattern by using a credit card in black ink, and considering different color combinations.

The advantage of doing these things in a journal cannot be overstated. You can look back on them and learn from them, remember them and use them again, or avoid doing those things in the future. Collecting your trial and error in a way you enjoy revisiting it is wonderful for growing any art practice. I encourage you to give it a try.





I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
