Art Journaling Fun!

I found a new technique on pinterest that I really wanted to try out in my journal. So I grabbed supplies and got started. It was easy, I only needed three things!
  • Masking tape
  • Coloured felt pens
  • art journal
The steps were just as easy, but the results are very fun and colourful!

I taped up a section of my page with masking tape for journaling in later, then began to draw flower designs all around the edges of the tape. It doesn't matter if it goes on the tape at all. 

After you're satisfied with your sketching, simply peel off the tape and you're left with a white space for journaling and a very funky edging design ...

I'm not sure what journaling I'll be adding to this page yet, but that's half the fun. Letting something be a work in progress!

Another pinterest idea ... writing about all the things that I love ... it was fun and relaxing! Have you done this before too?

My daughter, 'Little Writer Girl', shared with you last Friday about a beautiful journal page that she created at an art journaling workshop. We went together and I created a page of my own as well. It's a weekly lesson and we hope to go as often as we can together! I really enjoyed seeing how the pages turned out differently from each other, even though the subject was the same ...

I really enjoyed all the layering processes that were involved in creating this piece. My fingers were covered in paint and glitter and ink ... bliss! This is the first time I have ever done techniques like this, and I'm looking forward to finding out what we're going to be doing this Thursday night!

What have you been creating lately?!
