I Did It, I Did My First Art Journal Page

Okay, I managed to get the laundry done, I finished two unfinished gourds and also packed up the gourds in my big green bags.  I also managed to make my first Art Journal Page!  Of course my wonderful husband had to fix his own supper!   But I got my first Art Journal Page done!   WooHoo! 

I have to say that it is the coolest thing to just keep adding layers to the pages, if you aren't satisfied, paint or cover with another paper.  Journal something and I also dated and sign it too.  (A tip from one of my Facebook friends!)  I love that you can use any medium, stamps, paint, markers, fabric, chalk, wonderful papers, magazines, and even spray paint!  I have it all, I didn't have to buy anything to work on this project. 

The most difficult part was allowing myself to be free and loose with my work.  My favorite tool today was the hair dryer, it kept me moving......... I really should have been fixing supper, I just couldn't be gone for the next four days and not try Art Journaling!  I had too much fun and am already thinking about the next possibility, although it's probably better if you don't plan your page, just let it come.  

Okay, I feel creatively satisfied today, sort of like after the big Thanksgiving dinner, you've tasted all your favorite foods and you couldn't want for anything more.  I think I have a new obsessive art project!
