I think the biggest thing to remember about art journaling is it is for you. That means you should use products you're comfortable with and love. I would say gesso is a must have because it allows you to prep pages for painting and you can cover things up with it! I started out using a lot of things I already had and used for card making. I have added some acrylic paints, watercolor paints, stencils, gesso, spray inks and a few pens. Some people do a lot of collage - that's not my thing so I do very little of it. I love using the spray inks with and without the stencils. Just jump in and have fun!
