I painted a spread in my art journal using the amazing Dylusions black paint. It only took a small amount of the paint to cover the entire spread and it dried really quickly. I wanted to keep it simple so I decided to doodle on the black background with a white Sharpie pen.
I chose a happy pattern of fields and funny houses and unlike myself I added journaling and not just a quote. Talk about challenging... Doodling with the Sharpie was so fun and relaxing I just kept going and going, adding more and more details. I had to stop at one point when I remembered this is supposed to be a short video tutorial :)
I really recommend trying this. A lot of you emailed me that I make doodling look so easy but it's actually is easy! You just start with something small and then add something else and you keep going until you cover the page. The striking effect you get is because of all the little shapes coming together and not fancy painting! And the most important thing to remember is that art journaling is not about being pretty it's about creating an art journal page that speaks to you!
