|Gouache / 5X7|
Tim and I visited friends in Montana several years ago, and decided to drive down to Yellowstone National Park. We knew the park entrance was closed due to heavy snow, but thought we would enjoy the drive anyway.
Well, we got to the entrance. And we also got a full appreciation of the size of some bison at the side of the road. One in particular seemed bigger than our small rental car. After he gave us "the look," this city girl put the car in reverse and headed north back to Bozeman.
When I asked my friend how fast a buffalo can move, she smiled and said, "Faster than you." She also mentioned that more park visitors are injured in attacks by bison than wolves or bears...
As far as art journaling goes, I've been experimenting with applying color to deli paper. For this page, I used alcohol inks, but deli paper will accept watercolor, gouache and acrylic, too.
What I like about deli paper is that I can control the color and shapes (by tearing the deli paper and collaging it into the journal). I also love the translucency of the paper.
I'm taking a short class on inks and deli paper this weekend at a local craft store and will write about it next week. Hope to get a few more supplies (white markers, stencils, ..), too!
