A friend of mine, Kim Schofield, of eclectic Paperie, inspired me recently with her post about an art journal that she started. I have had that on my mind since I saw it, and last night, I bought a journal! I am so excited about the possibilities of this book! And it's just for me. I don't have to create something for anyone else! I know that that's selfish, but, this is a new experience that I want to try and I am so excited to get started! So, thank you Kim, for your inspiration!
This afternoon when I opened my journal to the first page, it (obviously) was blank. I just sat there staring at it, while in my mind, dozens of images and ideas were zooming around! I decided to choose my background paper as a jumping off point.
While perusing my paper supply, I found this from Glitz Designs:
I pulled out my KSS Hearts and Roses and after some trial and error recipes, here's my final design!
