Re: Kay's Junk Journal

I really enjoyed looking through your thread Kay. Love the effect of the gesso over the text and I like the variety of your subjects too.

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

It seems very pertinent to have an owl illustration in a book you have turned into something else. What a great illustration. Love the "Chapter Seven" over his/her brow.

Thank you Munin! With that number 7 on his head, he is one lucky owl!

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

I love your artwork with this journal! Is there a specific genre/name for this type of painting technique (text/gesso & varied mediums)?

Re: Kay's Junk Journal

Thank you Elle! You can Google 'grunge' or 'junk' journal and mixed media will probably pop up. Gesso is used to provide a white slick finish and also to preserve the book page. Also check out Helen's journal here in this forum as she is the one who sparked the idea in my head. Here is a link to her Grunge Journal post:
