An art journal page doesn’t have to happen all at once. Truly, there are no rules when it comes to art journaling and play. A few weeks ago I stenciled the heart with paint and let it be until I had a stack of PanPastels out on my counter that were whispering to me.
I love playing with PanPastels because they are so forgiving. That means no pressure to make it perfect since it is all blendable. You’ll see what I mean in the video…and you know there will be an Oops in there that turned out to be just what I needed…

To seal the PanPastels so they don’t smear, I use the Gelli Plate to apply a coat of gel medium. You can see how I do that in February’s Colorful Gelli Print Party.
