Do you journal? I journal a lot but have added art journaling to my repertoire since January. I have gone from a small Moleskine to a bigger journal format – using both the Strathmore Visual Journal, Dylusions journal and the Canson XL Mixed Media Pad. I like the Strathmore and so far haven’t had any problems with the pages in regards to bleed through, the Dylusions journal lots of bleed through and seepage into other pages that are connected through the signatures. The Canson XL, same thing no problems at all with it; however, both the Canson and the Strathmore are spiral bound and I really like having the option to do a two page spread. I think I’m going to try the Canson Mixed Media journal which is not spiral bound and see if I have any of the same problems as the Dylusions. I heard if you tape the center of the Dylusions you won’t have bleed through but then you will have a space in a two page spread. If anyone has idea I would love to hear them. Here is a two page spread I did in the Dylusions (the previous post of the face was in Strathmore). The pictures didn’t come out so great, I tried twice and think I’ll drag out my screens to see if I get a better picture, I also think the angle has something to do with it.
I’m not quite sure if it is finished. I am thinking she needs a little more, maybe outlining. If I do more I’ll update. Namaste!
