OK....A Little Art Journaling

Well here you are... these are the first attempts I have made at Art Journaling.  I think I have a lot to learn!  I bought a small 6x6 book from Prima and as I am not a 'messy' crafter (untidy..yes!  Messy...No)  I decided that I would just work on pieces of paper and then stick them into my journal once complete.  I am not sure that's the 'correct' way but it's my way :)  

Page One

I have got to say I enjoyed making the background, I just struggled to find a pen that would write on the painted background.  Any tips, hints or advice greatly appreciated.  Debbie, I took your advice and applied the paint with a wet wipe and waited very patiently for it to dry :) (patience not one of my strong points!)

Page Two

I used Pan Pastels for the background on this page so didn't have to wait for it to dry :)  The edge is some washi tape that I have had for ages and never knew what to use it on, I think it makes a great border.  I have got to say that I felt a sense of relief at writing these words down, funny isn't it :)  I have found myself walking around today saying to myself...'More doing...less thinking'  :).  I've accomplished quite a bit today!  Think this worked as my 'Reboot'

Well there you have first delve into Art Journaling, think this could become addictive!

That's all for now, thanks for popping by.
