Papers Influence Your Ink Wash

I wish EVERYONE paid more attention to this. You might say, “Roz, I don’t have a paper budget, I’ve got a grocery budget right now and I use what I use  for paper.” Yep, I get that. I don’t have a paper budget right now either. I do have some paper purchased for projects that […]

How To Use Space on Your Page Spread

This is a follow up of Wednesday’s post. Here’s an example of my experimenting with brush pen and ink wash on a page in a Japanese Lined journal.  I’d like to tell you this is cropped because there is text on the recto page that is private, but in reality it’s blank there, just more […]

Registration Is Open For The Final Session Of “Textures: Backgrounds For Visual Journaling And Mixed Media”

Yesterday registration opened for my final online session of “Textures: Backgrounds for Visual Journaling and Mixed Media.” If you’re new to my blog you might not know it but I enjoy pre-painting journal pages with a variety of media.

Simple Approaches for Backgrounds—A Five-Part Series: Part 1

I was organizing my images for blog posts and noticed that I had a lot of common themes, some not as obvious.  What do the images in today’s post and those referenced (linked) all have in common? Well all but one have backgrounds painted AFTER the sketch is made (and typically even after the sketch […]

The large, about 9 x 11 inch Japanese Lined Journal that I love to sketch in with the Pentel Brush Pen and Acrylic Markers. Carl Too is standing around watching the paper dry.

What’s on the Table?—The Curl of the Paper

I just love working in my favorite Japanese Lined Journals from APICA. The paper loves the Pentel Brush Pen. Sometimes I work in gouache on this paper, but sometimes I leave the sketch as is and turn the page. Other times I put in an acrylic marker background. I used an orange 15mm wide Montana […]

Same Pen—Different Papers

Throughout the spring this year I was testing watercolor papers. I made signatures of the watercolor papers I was testing and then used the same materials in each of the booklets. This is a quick and easy way to compare papers because you only have 16 pages until you can move on to the next […]

Why I Love Gouache

Above: Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch in a Japanese Lined Journal. This sketch was made on a spread first covered with Montana Acrylic Marker and washi tape.
