Art Journaling (Beginning)

I have been interested in Art Journaling for quite some time now...but have never done it.
Until now.   This is my first piece.
I bought a small artbook...5.5 by 8.5 in size.
I used Ranger Distress Paint Daubers in yellow, red, blue & pink.
I didn't really know what to do - so I just started out by making some lines and circles.  I then drew a heart and Cross, and then wrote things that are important to me...and things that I like.
This is going to be the cover page.

I know it's pretty plain - but I like it :-)

Linking this up to:  Art Journal Every Day


  1. Welcome to art journaling!!!! You are going to have so much fun .... and frustration at times :) I've only been doing it for a year and have learnt so much. Just want to encourage you to have fun with it, express yourself (like in your cool cover page) and don't listen to the inner critic. There's loads of really helpful sites and blogs. You could also join one of the communities on google + like Beginners Art Journaling. There are so many lovely people ready to give really encouraging feedback. Thank you for your lovely encouraging comment on my own blog. Blessing to you and let me know if I can help in any way.
