I'm getting the hang of it

And I love it!!!

Call me crazy but today I got up so sore, my whole body aches from working outside in the backyard trying to give our bunny a place of his own. I am so out of shape that even my fingers hurt. ha! but they don't hurt THAT bad! that I can't do art :D
So I got up and after doing a few house chores I decided to get my creative juices going,

 here is what I made :) another background in my own personal art journal,
Men! I am really liking this, it is kind of adictive, you can be yourself and do WHATEVER you want.
I LOVE that!!! lol
Anyways, here is a close up


As you can see here I went crazy trying different methods, the background has gesso, and let it dry, then I tried watercolors, just cheap school watercolors for now until I get better and can afford better ones,

I did this in green and blue inspired by my trip to Puerto Rico this summer, then I didn't even let it dry and put some soft yellow acrylic paint to a bubble wrap I found and sticked it to my paper :) but still needed something else so I used a plastic container where my brushes came into and put some soft pink acrylic paint and put it in my page where it was kind of empty. So far it looked good as a background so I am letting it dry.

Just in case you are wondering about that Winni the Pooh box, is where I keep my cheap acrylic paint :)

Well, thank you for taking a look, I really like art journaling, it gives me an opportunity to let it all out and be myself, to put in paper what I like and try some new techniques that I maybe use some day in my scrapbooking.


  1. Good work! Isn't it great fun?

  2. Working in garden is so tiring, i can understand.. I have 3 gardens...
