Altered Visual Art Journal

 I've started altering a journal that I purchased from the Goodwill store. I paid less tha 2 dollars for it. The cover is gessoed, painted with water colours, stenciled with gell medium, a acrylic white wash was applied, then grreen gold wax rubbed in.
 Page 1: gessoed, painted and collaged.

 Page 2 and 3: gessoed, painted collaged with papers and finally a layer of printed kleenex, then sprayed with magenta metallic paint.

 Page 4: gessoed, painted, printed with punchinella, accidental painted dog, ( sketched on to look like Oatis, my dog)  pictures of poppies under security envelop window.

 Page 5: gessoed, painted, coloured with Inktense Pencils.

 Page 6: Soluable crayons, collaged.

 Page 7:  paper napkin and Zentangle sample, used in a lesson with grade 4.

Close up of details of Cover. I love this technique! Hope you have enjoyed the first few pages of my journal. I am in the process of painting and collaging several more pages.
