Art Journal #1

Well, I've been having the best time creating an Art Journal! What I"ve enjoyed the most is the freedom of knowing that this is just for me. I don't have to create to give it to anyone, it's just for the fun of it. I've used a visual arts diary for this. All products are Kaszazz . On the cover I"ve used an eclectic blend of  our SB papers. The words are from our Carnival stamp set, the ferns are a  Lucy stamp, everything is current. I punched 3 large daisies and 3 medium ones to create the flower in the corner. The base paper is a print, but I stamped over it using chalk ink - berrylicious, lime pastel, pink pastel. I also distressed the edges.
On the first page , I drew the face using pencil and then coloured parts in using the stylus and sponges and distress inks. I stamped again with berrylicious on the background as well as coloured the background in with a sponge. I used the Girls rubons for the extra words etc that are black. Of course some glitter was added....... naturally.
Anyway, I hope this inspires you to head out and pick up a visual arts diary to do some creating. Give it a go, I think you're going to love it!
Take care
