So I have been watching and looking for a long time at art journalling..........I wanted to try it but was always a bit reticent - I imagined that my pages would turn muddy and that I wouldn't know what on earth to put on the pages............but then I found Kate's blog about creating an art journal calendar that can be completed everyday. Kate's amazing blog can be found HERE
So after a lot of debating I decided to buy a journal a just give it a try - here is my very, very first attempt:
I stamped 'January' down the right hand side using denim adirondak using Tim Holtz mini cirque alphabet set and then added the '2013' from a Papermania stamp set. All the stamped images in the background are from a set by Indigoblu, the bare tree branch was stamped in juniper, the grasses in worn lipstick and the clouds stamped in picket fence.
I then inked up three different pieces of paper and punched out 31 squares and stuck them onto the background. I used a black fine liner pen to scribble around each of the squares for definition, added the days of the week on the top row and numbered each square for the month.
So now all I need to do is remember to write in it everyday!!
So that is my first ever attempt at art journalling - I did very much enjoy it and am hoping to buy some of the dylusions inks pretty soon!!
