In this tutorial I am trying to show ways to prep the blank pages so it is easier to get going in a new journal book. I am guessing many folks have loads of beautiful journals, often still blank just because the thought of actually starting those first pages is terrifying. The materials I am using in this video are simple as possible: a glue stick, some text from a discarded book (or newspapers, or paper bags, dictionaries, etc), an old tooth brush, some watercolors, some odd things to use as stamps (old erasers, corks) and stamp ink that is washable (dye ink). That is it! Just start playiing and you will find the pages are much easier to work with if you try the layered approach. I look forward to hearing about your progress.
