Art Journaling

I love working in my art journals, using my inks, paints, sprays, stencils and stamps! My favorite journal is a 9" by 9" spiral bound sketch book by Bee Paper Company. I also use the large journal by Dylusions.

Today I'd like to share four journal pages I've done. On the first page, I've used Distress inks by Tim Holtz, stamps, rub-ons and stencils. The image was purchased from Ingrid Djikers.

The next three pages are from my 9 x 9 journal. The first one is a bit Steampunk and on this page I used Tim Holtz Distress inks, rub-ons, stamps, washi tape, old ledger paper and other bits and pieces from my stash. The second page is done with a beautiful image from Gecko Galz. I used a doily to stencil in the top left corner and added more pieces of the doily and stamping behind the image. I tore bits of mulberry paper to represent seaweed. The third page makes me think of spring - I used soft pastel colors in paint and ink, along with dots stamped with bubble wrap for the background. The tags are dyed with Easter egg dyes.

It is so much fun to work in the journals!
