Art journaling is ON!

here are my first art journal pages...hooray! I started watching you tube videos and got hooked immediately on Pam Carriker's style. She's very talented, very sweet and has a large body of work. It wasn't long before I was hooked line and sinker and on board. I joined the creative workshop site, signed up for her class Journal 365 and started, all in a couple days. One thing I am good at is "taking action". I drove on over to Blick art supplies and got some pencils, paint pens, and watercolor pencils. Then I watched the first video and I was ready for action. I can tell this is my new path, I love mixed media collage so much more than traditional painting. It's just more fun. More free. Before it was paint on canvas. Now its paint, it's pencil, it's stamps, it's paper, it's anything goes baby! That's what I'm talking about.....I like the journal aspect as a playground for ideas, too often I pressured myself by starting on canvas. Now I play on paper, if I have a potential masterpiece on my hands, then I can take it to the next level. If it's just nice and that's that then I can have it in my journal, just for me. GENIUS! I promise to share for those who care, hey that's a rhyme....thanks for checking in
