Here's a little tutorial if you are wondering what to do today in your journal. (We all need a kickstarted some times.) Start off painting or drawing a little picture. I did a couple of watercolors of birds.
These are my inktense watercolor pencils, I LOVE them. See the spray bottle? Once I get some color on the paper, spritzing with water really makes the pencil work pop. This is why I journal on heavy watercolor paper, it can take lots of punishment.
I drew around this bird with red pencil, then activated the ink with water. It holds the images on the page nicely. I also tend to dray parts coming off the torn paper onto the background, and stamp over the edges. All these help blend the images so they sit on the journal page nicely.
