My way part two

As promised, or maybe I should say threatened, here are two more pages in my art journal.

For this one I took a piece of scrapbook paper, cut it down to size and punched a border along the top of it. Then I looked through a magazine for a picture to cut out and paste on the page.

This one I started by cutting out the words endless possibilities from a magazine. I pasted them on the page and then painted the shape in the center. The rest of the page was done with markers. I'm kind of like a kid when it comes to  markers. I can entertain myself for quite a while with them.

I do have one more page finished and another one started but no pictures taken of them just yet. I'll give you a break before I come back to this.

A lovely idea Ann - not just the journal but sharing it too.

I was thinking about beginning one about our bees - now that I sadly do not have my lovely cat to think about I find myself growing ever more affection for my honey bees.

I really like this idea, I often get the urge to do a nature diary but that's as far as it gets. lol

I have one of these - somewhere - that I started a while back. Yours is much prettier! My talent is only pinky sized - yours is 1000x that.

Awesome pages Ann! They actually look very similar to my smash books...I have so many of them, I have lost count!!

I love it and I love your new background.

Catherine said...

Oh my - I need some of that crafty mojo. I had the realization this morning that I haven't sat in my craft room for over a year. That's sad! Especially when I have so many lovely craft supplies. Well, holidays are fast approaching. Perhaps the crafting bee will sting me.

Love your journal pages - fun!

I see, it is just like scrap booking except no photo. You are very creative, Ann. I won't know where to start.
