Anti Journal

Repeat and Alter

These next pages in my Anti Journal took hours and hours to do.


First I did all the drawing with a Faber Castell pen


And then I did all the colouring with my Inktense pencils and a water brush


I haven't 'critiqued' it yet, and I may not. I'm thinking of just decorating that speech bubble into silence. We are all our own worst critics and I'm trying my hardest not to do that within this book. It is for fun, for  'wrecking', for not being finicky and fussy.

Thanks so much for visiting. I do hope you leave me a word or two; they mean so much to me. 

Keep a check on CarolynKaren & Lynn's blogs who all have 'Wreck this Journal' journals. I'm sure they would appreciate your visit  to check out what they have done in their journals too.  

Until next time take care and be well ~ TTFN
((hugs)) Mo :o)) x

    1. Thank you Denise ((hugs)) If my work were like your zentangles I would have 'Magnificent' in the speech bubble! xoxox

  11. Gotta love those Inktense pencils! I think I have a crush on mine ;-) The colors are SO vibrant, as your page shows very well. I like it a LOT, all those different forms and patterns and colours are so cool and pretty. I am sure it took you a long time to complete, but as long as it's enjoyable and relaxing, who's counting the hours? :-)
    A critique can indeed be positive, like a feedback or reflecion on what you enjoyed the most about the process, for instance. But it's of course up to you, so just leave it blank if you want to :-)

  13. Holy cow, Mo. You have gone well over and above what might have been expected of you for this spread. I KNOW how long it took to create these two pages, and what a labor intensive job it must have been. My hand cramped up just looking at everything (grin).

    Fabulous and fantastic, dear friend.

  14. Good for you on finishing this Mo, it is delightful. Full of colour and lovely designs. Each square sits cohesively with its neighbour as well as making the whole. You should congratulate yourself.

  16. Those would be beautiful framed for the wall! Have you seen the Elmer glue and watercolor art? Basically on watercolor paper you outline your design with white glue when dry fill in the sections with watercolors, very pretty 3-D work.

    1. Thanks Angela. No I haven't seen the glue and watercolour art. I will have to investigate :o))
