The Journey......Art Journal Layout

I started an art journal a year or so ago and somehow, somewhere along the way I stopped.
I got into the habit of over-planning and over-thinking every creative project instead of just letting the creativity flow naturally.
I decided I just needed to sit down with my art journal and just let the ideas happen.
No planning. No thinking.

It was so refreshing and it reminded why I began an art journal in the first place.
This page a little bit of everything - painting with a brush and some with my fingers; stamping, stencils; texture paste;distress stains; metallic paint; gesso & rub-ons.
From start to finish this took me 45 minutes to finish including the drying time.

Hello, Art Journal. It's nice to see you again.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
I really appreciate it.
