First Steps into Art Journaling......

I've always said I don't see the point of journaling........ now I'm dabbling in it....... never say never eh!


I started of just testing some paint dabbers I bought recently, oh it's so much fun making splats with them...... lol.  So then I carried on and added more with ink splat stamps and finished of with a bit of random stamping with a Tim Holtz stamps.  I printed the wording of and cut it up.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK

I'm so in love with this place after spending our 30th wedding anniversary there, back in September, and I'm not a city person!  Now I can't wait to go back.......


I cut Lady Liberty, the skyline and the I♥NY shapes on my Cameo, which I then painted with acrylic paints. I made my own texture paste (pva glue and talc) and added it through a stencil.  I then added red and blue ink sprays, stamped randomly.  

Individual looks of each page.



Am I getting the hang of art journaling or what.  Seems a bit like scrapbooking to me..... lol.
