As I've been talking about the last while I'm so addicted to art journaling. Mostly I've been creating backgrounds so far and assembling the pages. Here's a portion of my process (I'm a newbie so I know I am doing things differently than others would). Anyho.. here goes....
Lovely acrylic painted backgrounds waiting to be bound into signatures - to me they are yummy!
More backgrounds still drying (and yes that is a clear plastic cloth draped over the table for two reasons... protects from my messiness while painting & Bella's hair - I 'try' to keep her off the table, but catch her there still now and then):
Here are some of the signatures before binding - I'm using file folders to wrap the outside edges, the insides (shown above) are old Christmas cards:
I forgot to take a picture of the binding process - maybe I'll add that in the next time I'm binding a journal.
And here is my first journal entry for 2014 & the first page of my journal! It's acrylic background, markers along the edges and bits of scrap paper topped with some yarn from creating wristlets this past December:
I decided to glue this little hummingbird to the top edge - as some of you will know hummingbirds represent joy. I think that's a perfect word to infuse into 2014!
Thanks for looking! Hopefully I'll share more over the course of the year. I know I'm pretty addicted to this mixed media play so we'll see how things go.
Have a happy day!
