I have been making major efforts to really play in my journal. Lately, I've been into using oil pastels on top of acrylic ink. The creaminess is amazing and I love the effect you get when done over oil. I also have been having fun playing around with the Pilot Varisty pen and the painterly effect you get when water is brushed on. I just wish I had more time in the day and I didn't have to do laundry or ever make dinner! They I'd really have more time to play.
