Another Way to Begin a Journal Page

Here is another way I like to begin a journal page. Draw with crayon on your page. I didn't gesso the page first, but you could if you feel like your page needs a little more strength. Put the crayon down on parts of the page but not everywhere. 

Then do a wash of paint. I used acrylic and watered it down a bit.

If you want to see where I have used this technique before, it was on the 'girl with hare' journal page.

Next time I will  show you what I did after this on one of the pages we have already begun.

Go here if you want to see another way to start a journal page.
