It has been a while since I posted anything.....a few health issues but I am getting back in the swing of things now. Certainly I am inspired by the very gifted artists I follow on the internet.....
There are blogs and other wehsites that encourage Artistic Journaling.....so I am trying to finish the journal I started over three years ago. I know that sounds like a long time and probably is to most....but the theme of it is 'My Favorite Things'. I have many 'favorite things' to share....and the inspiration comes when it comes. So.....I just want to share the cover and some of the pages I have completed so far. I have almost all of the pages at least started.....and usually projects go much faster for me than this! I have had a mental block on this one for some reason. I think if I blog about it maybe it will motivate me to finish it for good! Thanks for taking time to look.
The book is one I bought at Hobby Lobby and has a hard cover and back with a spiral binding. I used acrylic paint on the outside, Grungeboard, Black Stazon ink, permanent black micron pen, wall paper and collaged paper. This is collaged over the top with mat gel medium.
I used all kinds of layers on the pages inside much like the outside....just whatever I felt like using at the time. There is alot about my faith in the pages of this book....my husband, family, dog, my youth....oh yes...and the art I love. Also I used stencils and stamps here and there, wax oil and water crayons.....chalks and watercolors.
