Hello, everyone! Asmah here and I'm glad to have you here on the blog this beautiful Monday. Today it's my turn to share with you the way I do art journal pages in my sketch book.

I love texture and there are various ways one can do to create texture. I love experimenting with items I find interesting to use in my creations. As for texture, my common technique I love is using serviette tissue simply because it creates pattern naturally. I hope you will find my step-by-step tutorial a pleasant reading.

First, I adhered a piece of serviette tissue with PVA glue.

I brushed off the surface with one coat of light gesso.

I dried the gesso with a heat gun and continued with the next process. I decided to use the Bubbles stencil to make patterns randomly by applying modeling paste over it.

My favorite part begins at this point! I love playing with watercolor paints
and water to start coloring...

...until I feel satisfied with the entire coloring process.

Otherwise I will touch up certain areas for depth.

After drying my page with a heat gun, I used Artsy Border Maker to stamp randomly.

I filled up some white space with my hand drawn zen doodle flowers
and added sentiments.

Basically this is how I create my art journal page when I use serviette tissue for texture. There's more to come from me next month. I'm Asmah signing off for now. Happy creating!
