My first time.

At the recent Retreat some of the Bubblies did a class on Art Journaling, I wasn’t so sure about this so didn’t buy any supplies. In the raffle though there was an A6 notebook and a couple of pens so I thought i’d have a go.

I’ve had an enforced craft day today as Sky phone lines have been down, meaning no internet for us.

I decided to get inky and painty and amongst other things I managed a page in the journal. I don’t have the water soluble wax crayons which were used but tried with acrylic paints instead, painting and sponging 2 colours together.

This is what I came up with.SAM_0424

I used a small flower border stamp and coloured in with white using black and purple pens for the writing and doodling. I’ve got a long way to go yet before I have the confidence to do much freehand doodling but i’m pleased with this as it is my first attempt. I hate my handwriting normally but it’s not bad like this.

Very nice. Doesn't look like your style though, but I do like it :0) I'd like to have a go, but wouldn't know how what to do! xx

Love the way you've used the flower stamp to anchor the journalling lines at the top - looks like you're off to a great start!

Ooo this is fab Sue!! I hope you'll be doing more as there's nothing wrong with your doodling at all. Keep going please! xxx

This is fantastic Sue!! You must link this in on Crafty Fans. The doodling looks good to me - that's the aspect of journalling that I am not sure about too. Maybe I should just do it like you have - I will add it to my list of a bazillion things :-) Lol Lynn ♥
