I enjoy looking at art journals created by others and decided to take the plunge and begin one of my own. Talk about total freedom! Play, experiment, no way to fail, no judgement- it's all good. I don't even have to share if I don't want to.
So, I've decided to 'art up' different quotes and words for life that I've been collecting forever. That let's me get started with the art part, and ease on in to the journal part :)
I began by dragging a couple different colours of distress ink around the page- sometimes pausing to let the square shape of the pad show up. I was testing out a new die and so the cut from it became the base for my "10 things to learn in life" plant. Over-sized leaves to write in and lots of outlining.
Easy and relaxing- and I'm using my supplies, yayyy!
I try to work in the book, a little everyday, or zentangle, and it's very calming.
Art is so good for you!
So go do some and have an amazing day.
Thanks for looking, I do appreciate it.
