  73. Another beautiful and amazing art journal page...I want to start this too. Love how you used the gelatos. Great colors and texture with the white on white. I wish people could recommend papers and books that work for them for art journaling. I have a miriad of paper pads for different art purposes but the only books I have are for sketching with really thin paper...?? Thanks for sharing.
