I have the first few steps completed . . . I'll work more on this later. First step, i gessoed over the vintage pages in my altered book after adding a few images.
Second step, I used a raspberry-colored paint pen to write out some things that keep me from my journal.
Third step, I used Ceramacoat acrylics [in "cricket" and "ocean"] to "gesso" over the paint pen. I like using this brand of paint in journals because it's still pretty loaded with pigments, but it is chalkier that artist-grade acrylics, so the pages are less likely to stick together when i close the journal.
Fourth step, I used a chisel-tip sharpie and a black pigment marker to write WHAT? across the spread. I have no idea what I'm doing next. lol.
