I have been painting since the art journaling page I did on Thursday, and I have really been enjoying using my new Gelli Plate. I use the Sailor Mini Correction Pen - mm from JetPens. Love this pen. Truly works better than any other white pen I have used.
Art journal pages definitely don't have to have lots of text! Here's an awesome page with no hand-written text at all. I love how the book page was cut into the bird shape and added over the simple (but great!) flower sketches on the background.
