Imagine, Create, Inspire

Hello Everybody!

I hope you are all having a fantastic Sunday!

 I wanted to share with you one of the projects I created while I have been away. Any guesses what it is? LOL If you said art journal you are correct. I have been seeing all sorts of videos and tutorials on mixed media journal or art journals, and thought it looked like fun. Usually in my crafting I am pretty regimented and picky about things matching and being straight, so I thought this would be something a little more freeing. I have done 3 pages so far and I am in love with it. I absolutely love the freedom and the liberation of not having rules. Yes in my world there are crafting rules! LOL I cant help it!

For this page, I used minimal supplies. Just some gesso, spray inks from Lindy's Stamp Gang, modeling paste and some stamps and paper from my stash.

Above is the overall page

I did not use scissors on any portion of this page. Everything was ripped my hand.

The sky was made using modeling paste and spray inks.

If you have thought about starting an art journal I would say go for it. I am finding it very fun, liberating and it allows me to used supplies and mediums I might not try with my normal projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
