Enjoy the Journey - An Art Journal Venture...

Today, we have a new inspirational post at StampARTic. This time, the design team have created different Art Journals and created backgrounds. I have not made a lot of Art Journal, just because I have struggled to find my own way, creating the journal. Some time ago, I found Finnabair's Family Journal online, and this was entirely my kind of journaling. I like the style, and I also like the fact that there is a theme going on through the Journal. So I got a book, and decided to have a go, but do it my own way.

The photo is one I took in New York this summer. My aim is to use my own photos and add a few good quotes, as well as creating different backgrounds, and testing out new techniques, products and Mixed Media effects, in the Journal.

I have used strips of paper, glued them to the page and covered the page in Gesso. Then, I have added dylusions spray, distress ink and strips and blocks of coloured paper I have also used different kind of metal and stencils.

The doilie has been coloured with distress ink. 

This was the start of my book, and my Art / Mixed Media Journal venture. 

I am entering these challenges:
