I've started....

I now have a small pile of pages with backgrounds prepared for my art journal and some I'm leaving with just a coat of gesso so that I can just make it up on the spot. Over time I'll make some more pages as I have a desire to get all sticky and love the process of making them. I love the feel of multi medium on my fingers, real hands on creating...oh loveliness, and the smell...awwww. If you haven't already - go sniff some!
So far I have finished two pages in my journal, and I'm wondering how it's going to progress as they are very different styles.



This is the first page. Can you tell I was in a slightly dark mood when I did it? Hmmmm... I was tired and just felt the need to sit down and take a break from everything, and that's what the journaling tells you.

This second page I was in a mood to get the multi medium and make a pretty page. Lots of playing with paint, stamps, gold pens (not the norm for me) images and pencils.







I loved the end result so much I made a set of ATC's in the same way. Question is do I want to swap them? Maybe, but not just yet. I'll be back later to share those with you as blogger is taking far too long to upload photo's today and I am losing the will...

I love those pages. Love them. I can't do it. It gets messy and turns to mud and it feels all contrived.....I shall do it vicariously through you!

Wonderful pages - I really like the green one with all of that wonderful doodling.
