(My First) Art Journal Page

Some of the products I was using to get crafty!
Still a work in progress but I thought I'd share.
I'm all about small details and texture
Hey Crafters!
Today I started work on My first Art journal page. Since I've been getting more into mixed media, it seems only natural that I would progress into art journaling. I was really inspired By the fall season coming up and of course Halloween! For My first Art journal I choose a (Strathmore) Brand journal which is actually called a mixed media journal. You could choose any brand journal , including maybe an old book you have lying around, but I wanted one made for art journaling because I wanted the pages to hold up well to various mediums. Most important thing to remember when art journaling is just have Fun with it! (Oh and put Gesso on you pages) I would list all the benefits of (Gesso) but I'm sure you guys have heard them a million times..If your just starting to art journal like me and have any questions please feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer , because it can be a little hard to figure out where to start sometimes. Anyways I hope you guys Feel inspired By my first page and that it makes you wanna start you own! ( It's really fun I promise :-P)

Father's Day Card

I  literally handmade everything on this card except the chain.
another one of my handmade flower

Hey Crafters!
I'm like the ultimate Daddy's girl! (LOL)For those who know me personally know this to be true. Anyways I designed this for my Dad last year on father's day because I just always feel inspired when I think of my father , and I wanted to make a card to express just how much I love him! I decide to do a mixed media type of Card because when it comes to cards I really like to make my own rules.Plus my dad is an artist himself so I could just make an ordinary card ! This is actually one of my favorite cards I've designed ,which now that I think about it makes sense ,  because anything done out of love will always turn out amazing. Hope you love it as much as I do <3
