A new year, a new journal

Hi everyone! It's a new year and a great time to start a new creative venture. I'm starting a sketch journal.

For this project, I used:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mini Journal Board
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Gesso
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils: 108, 115 (YELLOW set); 156, 168 (GREEN set); 131, 176,187, 234, 276 (NEUTRAL set)
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Deluxe Waterbrush

The steps are really simple here. Let me walk you through.

I started with the Mini Journal Board.

Applied a coat of gesso to prime the board.

Inspired by a hexagon rug I had seen, I doodled random polygons and colored them in with Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.

Using a Deluxe Waterbrush, I blended the colors a bit and wrote January at the base to mark the first month.
I'm sure you all are going to see more of this journal from me in coming months :)
