Paint Pens and Lots of Color!

I decided to practice my doodling and using paint pens in my art journal this week. I came up with these two pages, both a lot more colorful than my usual pages.

I really like the Bloom one... I am liking this doodling idea!

And this one I liked for all the variety of paint pens I used...

Both started out with gelli printed, sprayed and stenciled backgrounds. I gotta remember to take the before pictures!

  6. Beautiful journal pages! Doodling can be so relaxing sometimes. Just letting your imagination take over and doing rather than thinking.

    1. Thanks Annette! Paint pens are basically markers with paint in them! Of course colors tend to be limited but I like how you can use them like markers. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog for PPF!
