Making Time for Art Journal Play and Exciting News!!

Good morning everyone! Today I would like to share a few art journal pages that I’ve done recently. I’ve been part of an art journal swap hosted by Frog Dog Studio and let me tell you there are some seriously creative gals in this swap!! We all chose our OLW (One Little Word) as the theme for our individual journals then had fun swapping with everyone and interpreting THEIR OLW in our own unique ways.

This is the first page in my personal journal. My OLW for this year was “Grow”.

I was having so much fun, I decided to do up the very first page also since it was a single page and I had previously left it blank.

Here a page that I created using Dina Wakley’s Scribbly Birds stamps, as well acrylic ink and paints. Her OLW was “Reach”.

This page was created for the OLW “Dream”. I used Dina Wakley’s Face in the Crowd stamp for this one, along with vellum, acrylic paint, oil pastel, and watercolor crayons and pencils, as well as stamps.

When I got my journal back I created this spread just for fun 🙂
