Art Journal 7 Blooming Close

Hello again!  It’s Get Messy Thursday today and I get to share with you my most recent art journal creations.  I’ll try to keep my words to a minimum today as it’s already been a long week and I need to get to bed.

It’s been an interesting summer, … Continue reading

Art Journal 5 lucky me closeup pic

It’s hard to believe I’ve been art journaling now for only five weeks. I love it so much that I’m having trouble remembering what I was doing before.  I guess I was making a lot more cards than I am now.  I’m still so in love with the larger format of the journal, the no rules aspect, and the painty magic of it all.  I know … Continue reading

This week I decided to put the journal back into … Continue reading
