ART JOURNAL - the beginning!

Hello lovely bloggers....a BIG thank you to those that have recently started to 'follow' me, I am delighted XXX

Now then...after hearing how wonderful it is to have an Art Journal I have actually taken the plunge.  BUT....how hard was the first page???  Incredibly hard!!!  I faffed & worried for ages before realising that an art Journal is actually for ourselves...no-one else...so as long as we are happy with what it 'says' then it has to be right..yes???  This actually isn't my 1st page as thats a bit too personal to show but my 2nd...

I have used an A5 book and painted, glued, painted again etc.  Its actually quite a bumpy page and I had to add a piece of the manky fabric hahahaha!  I know I have a long way to go on these as there are some amazing works of art out there, but its a start!

Thank you for popping by today , HUGS XXX

That's why I make the kind of journals I make. That means the pages aren't blank when you start. However, this page is darling, and I love what you wrote about sewing a skirt. I know that panic attack feeling when it comes to sewing, that's for sure. Love your beginning, and look SO forward to more.

Karen, its lovely and its just as nice and arty as any other journal. I love that you used fabric in it too. All journals end up bumpy... i think its just the nature of them :)
