A few years ago, I purchased this book by L.K. Ludwig on Nature Journals:
I fell in love with making nature prints with Procion fabric dyes and Kosher salt:
It was a really fun activity to do at the lake! I had lots of natural materials and could work outside.
I had so much fun making the prints that I never got to making the journal! Lol!
Then I found this old ledger at a thrift store so I started creating pages for it:
However, I didn’t get very far on the project. With my renewed interest in creating a nature journal with my sketches, I decided it was time to “dig” this one out again.
Yesterday, I added some collage papers to some of my prints:
I had fun playing with color and different images… and will continue to add to these pages.
Have you ever created a “Mixed Media” Nature Journal? I’d love to hear about it!
Happy Creating! 🙂
