I had more fun with old letters in this art journal page – in this case I stumbled across the words “calculated probabilty” and I cut the rest out of the letter to form the journaling “there is a calculated probability you remain where you are planted, affectionately your poppa”.

I also tried my new Caran D’Ache water soluble Graphite Pencil set. I love it – the green and blue graphite pencils are so cool. I did add some yellow acrylic ink on top of the face which I honestly regret, it looked way better before… but that is fine – I learned about the pencils and I broke them in. They might be my new favorite thing.
Here are some of the supplies I used:
