By aisling d'art ©2007 You can use any page in a book like fabric (to sew on, for example) by using iron-on interfacing on the back side of the page. Yes, just iron it on, the same as you would iron interfacing onto fabric. It won't always stick 100%, but it will work well enough that you can sew through it.

Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes proves that doodling can be so much more than scratching unintelligible scribbles on paper. Through his Sketchy Stories blog, Rosanes shares his wonderful world of doodling in a simple Moleskine sketchbook.

Equipped with an ordinary Moleskine, a few Uni Pin drawing pens, and his innate gift for drawing, the artist is able to transport viewers to a world where tiny, cartoonish creatures explode with gusto to make up larger entities.

The portraits are immediately mesmerizing, but even more spectacular when looked upon closely. The Therapeutic Writing Institute. Mixed-Media Art Journaling Techniques in a Strathmore Art Journal with Pam Carriker. Wax paper and art journals.

When I'm separating journal pages with wax paper, I cut or tear the wax paper so that it's slightly larger--at least one-half inch--than the pages that I'm working with. The key to successfully using wax paper to separate them, is not to allow much weight on the wet pages. Generally, I gesso five or six pages at a time. If I was working with a regular, bound journal, I'd watch carefully to see how much the binding "pulls" the pages together. Supplies for Journaling. How to create and keep an art journal.
