Art Journal Play

I have been neglecting my art journal lately, and it has been a while since I have shared anything I have done. So now is the time for a catch up as I ponder doing a canvas or 2 in the next few days. I have loads of ideas rattling round in the head but not totally sure how to achieve the looks I want so will be off to play after I give you lot something to look at!!

This is my home made Journal that I have thrown together experimentally.
We shall see how it stands up to the rough treatment I am to give it in the future!
Fingers crossed that it holds together

This one was inspired by the lovely work of Louise Nelson.....

The journalling says "Just Living is not enough said the Butterfly,
One must have Sunshine, Freedom and a little Flower"
by Hans Christian Anderson
These next ones are the pages I did for the article in Scrapbooking Memories Magazine.......
Thought you may want a closer look:

So now I am off to wrestle with a few ideas.....
Stay safe and thanks for dropping by!



  1. Michelle this is amazingly beautiful, I love all of your techniques, you journal is very inspiring.

  2. Thanks so much Sandra so glad you stopped by!

  3. Gee whiz! These really are very many ideas...each one I thought 'oh, this is my fave'...then the same with the next!!! Looks like you're LOVING this art form:):)

  4. I've never tried journalling. This looks like such 'inky' fun, such eye catching designs and colours!

  5. Thanks heaps ladies you really have to give it a go! I started by using the journal to try out new techniques, but then it got to be a lot of messy fun!


Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know you were here!
