I'm super excited about today's post as I've created my first ever ART journal page! Wow! Such a very very different technique for me!
And here it is:
It was inspired and totally CASEd from STAMPlorations DT member Susanne Rose. I've followed her on instagram and watched her videos for a while now and totally adore her style, so I decided it was time to take the bull by the horns and give it a go!
As you can see I copied quite a lot of the elements from Susanne's page, but added some paste butterflies and outline feathers using ARTploration stencils. I also wanted to add some words and chose this STAMPloration sentiment because it described so perfectly how I felt at the beginning of this project. So scary to actually hand draw items on top of a prepared inky background - squeal!!!!
At the end I was really sad to stop and wanted to keep on adding extra bits, so I don't think this will be my last journey into ART Journalling. I've already got plans to make a book to hold all my pages - and I do love creating mini books and albums. It will be interesting to see how I progress and develop.
