Julie has done it again … I am thoroughly enjoying her Super Nova Online Journaling workshop … it is jam packed with techniques and inspiration … being able to watch Julie create is a joy all in itself

PattyS 2nd Monoprint

  1. oo wonderful! i love painting backgrounds and sometimes that’s all i do….something will come…or not…you like what you’re doing, right? this practice seems to agree with you….


  2. oo have you tried those caran d ache watersoluble pastels yet? they would look fabulous on that top page….you could try some “poison” colors….they just pop off the page! if you don’t like them you can damp cloth wipe them off…i can see some lime green and purple around the edges there…just a thought! love these!! now you have me itching to get that journal out and make backgrounds!!!
