Art Journal

Hey there ... How are you all?

I'm not feeling too good, think I caught a chill at the BBQ... Our summer is over and being in denial we sat out and braved the chilly evening ... now I'm paying for it Lol!

I've been saying for the longest time that I'd like to start an art journal ... Finally I have


I just didn't know where to start really or how I wanted my journal to be ... The first page was always going to be the hardest so I've kept it simple...
I was inspired to begin my journal after watching videos by the amazingly talented Shari Carroll and I liked the idea of doing back to back pages ... This is my first page 


Whilst being inspired by one of Shari's creations I went my own way using stamps I had and bits and pieces from my scraps 


I like the idea that I can still do some stitching using this method of putting the pages together ... and I'm hoping to use up a whole lot of scraps and die cuts I have laying around ...


... Not to mention papers, washi tape and modelling paste

Now I've started I can't wait to do another page ...

Have yourselves a lovely day
