ART journal page

Hello and welcome to my blog where I share my 
I have been keeping art journals for many years 
But never really shared them as I did not know if they would be of interest 
to others.
I love Affirmations and choose one for each page of my journal .

Every day of your LIFE
 is a page of your HISTORY

 I usually create my pages separately and then add them to my journal
This way I have more fun with my paints and inks without worrying about spoiling 
my journal with messy paint runs and drips ..

 I really adore using Tim Holtz distress inks and stains 
I find they are so easy to use and are easily wiped off with a wet wipe, if I apply too much .
I have finished this page with crackle paint to give a rich deep sheen and crackle effect. 

 lots of layering with corrugated cardboard , paper, metal embellies and chipboard 
and washi tape .
inks, paint, stains and crackle paint .

I created this page to add to my ' GRUNGY ' Journal .
I have various journals, some are quite bright while others are 
soft and romantic .
is one of my favourite things to do.
Thanks so much for popping by 
and taking the time to leave me some love x
