I’ve been a “word” journaler for years, but this is my first attempt at visual journaling. I signed up for the online Strathmore Art Journal Workshop with Pam Carriker. I printed a couple photos from our backyard onto regular paper and collaged them onto 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. We used graphite and charcoal pencils, oil pastels and gesso. Acrylic paint was sponged on some areas. The birds on the ground and flying were rubber stamped.
