I have cardstock of various colors. Each was cut in various sizes and taped onto a board. Then I painted using colors that compliment the paper. After it dried I took acrylic markers and drew in details.
Later, they will be glued into the art journal.
I plan to paint more in my art journal for 2023.
My Etsy shop is open and has some amazing pen and ink drawings and acrylic paintings that are sold in prints. Check it out https://4PawsArtStudio.etsy.com
Happy New Year
