Art Journalling

Art Journalling has become a very hot topic lately.  It has been around for awhile, but lately it seems to be everywhere!  Some of the SGD divas are trying to make an effort to get together once a month for some art journalling.  We met this past Friday and here is a page I added to my journal (my journal that I started March 2011 with Donna Downey and has remained closed since!!)

An art journal - also called an inspiration journal, a life journal - is a place to try new techniques, create new designs, record thoughts, experiences - no rules, anything goes.  Get out stamps you have never used, paints that you have never opened - experiment, get messy and have fun! 

On my page, I used the following supplies: 

Crafters Workshop
Chicken Wire 6x6 Reverse Stencil

Ranger Dylusions
Quintessential Quotes Stamp Set


    Queen & Co. 
    Black & White Polka Dot Trendy Tape

 Tim Holtz for Ranger
 Nature's Moments Stamp Set


Mister Huey
Ampersand Mask

WRMK Sew Stamper
Zig Zag

Ranger Dylusions
Word Love Stamp Set


I started the page with several shades of Tim Holtz Distress Ink:

Old Paper
Bundled Sage
Pine Forest
Walnut Stain

And all the stamping was done with black Archival ink by Ranger.

I hope you like my little page and may have inspired you to start your own art journal!!! 
Have a fantastic day!!
