Journaling Through the Proverbs - Proverbs 5


Journaling Through The Proverbs - Proverbs 5 by Lynn Shokoples
 Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! I am really enjoying the journey of reading and reflecting but honestly the art...that can be frustrating somedays,  like what happened on these pages. I have found that even dry, some of my colors can rub onto the page next to it. I'm not sure if it's that I'm using a heat tool on the pages next to them or what but I was determined to find a solution. I had some fixative, and tried it on a sample page but oh gosh it was stinky and I don't like harsh chemicals..so scrap that! Then I found a Youtube video suggesting a wax...now that seemed ok, so I ordered some. It coated the pages perfectly and I was excited! Until........... I opened up my book the other day to do this post. The well page had the pink and green from the glasses all over it.. now try to get that off the wax! Oh yeah..an eraser worked, but made a big gummy mess. So to cut the story down a little, I think I found a solution! Clear gesso! I did a test and it didn't reactivate the watercolors, so I'm giving that a go! Will keep you updated! Whew......that was long, but... we must keep it real and share our good art experiences along with the bad right? If you made it all the way here...thank you for listening! Blessings for a beautiful week.

This is beautiful. Lovely pictures.
I didn't use to use anything on my pages. Now I use a clear gesso underneath. Paint with watercolour. Let dry and then it seems to be fine. Nothing rubs off.
Blessings
