For the visual journal I used paint, gesso, cloth, and magazine cutouts. I started with the circle cutouts and the doyle and it reminded me of my grandmas house so that was my theme. I picked things that looked aged, and I used a lot of browns and reds. I tried to lay beads in gesso to create texture, but it ended up just looking like a white paint stripe. I transferred the wood and newsprint with tape, and I was happy with the outcome. Below the fabric I tried to transfer a picture with gesso, but it did not work so I covered it with cloth.
