(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)
