The pages in the art journal are white cardboard (including a pair of extra long pages), unused Gelli prints, colorful thick pages from the Flow magazine, and a couple of pages of old teaching material (I saved some folders from my previous job's office cleaning). I wanted that some pages are already colorful, but sometimes (depending on the task or the idea) it's nice to start with a blank page.
I already made the first page. Kasia urged us to consider e.g. what we want from our art this year. I collected thoughts on the left side and finally then I summarized them to one statement "bigger and bolder outside the box". Often, I made end up making relatively small art journal pages with my familiar style. This year I want to try more new techniques and colors combinations and go more outside the box and my comfort zone. I would like to do more bigger canvas works that I was "too afraid" to do that much so far.
