Art Journal, a novice approach

So, I have taken an attempt at ART JOURNALing. Love the freedom, love the uniqueness of it all, and mostly I love that there are NO rules! I have mostly just been playing around, trying to figure out what mediums cause what effects.

My staple beverage these days as I have seemed to have caught whatever has been floating around. Thank God, it's not too bad, just a runny nose and sinus pressure.

And this boy is crazy artistic. This is his current obsession - rectangles and square. He also can write the numbers 1, 2, 7, and 0. It is amazing to see (wow, and he just successfully wrote a 3 as I type) !

Create in a crunch

The first scrapbook page since my last post. I must have been REALLY wanting to scrap, because this baby practically made itself.

estimated time to complete = the time it took hubby to give Seth a bath!

I love the sound of crafting in my house. Silent scraping of paint on paper, or tiny fingers. Creativity resounding throughout inspiring hearts to recreate on paper feelings, images, and moments we just don't want to ever leave us.

Now, it's time for me to reconnect with the inner creative child within me. She is just dying to come out and play. So, I present two projects I will attempt to tackle in the next months.

ALTERED PROJECT #1: Recipe Roladex
ALTERED PROJECT #2: Monthly scripture focus board
