My Art Journal

My Art Journal Cover

I 'm really getting into this art journal thIng lately,it makes a nice change filling in a hour or so when I just need to just sit and relax,playing around with pens and paint,not having to try very hard,just what comes to mind at the time.
I had an old A5 ring binder,decided to alter it for my journal pages covering it with 140LB watercolour paper then painting it with the wet in wet technique,the lettering is done with my cuttlebug die' that was VERY easy lol.
I,m not showing all my pages,bit to personal !

Spent the morning cleaning my art room,sorting out the huge cupboard i have in here,throwing loads of paper and books out,it just got to the scary stage,just could'nt stand looking at the mess! at least i found bits that had been missing for ages,nice suprises lol......Next week is a round of Drs and hospital appointments,also a day out to Hastings,love it there,just love the Antique shops and the oldy worldly atmosphere.Hopefully i will find some nice bits to add to my stash!

Have'nt got a clue what my next creation will be,just hope i,m not losing my mojo,Me thinks i need inspiring !
