What's Up Wednesday - Art Journaling

What's Up Peeps, Norma G. here with  

Today I wanna share one of my VERY favorite things to do, ART JOURNAL.  I began art journaling last year as a way to blow off some creative steam if you will.  It's also a wonderful way to use up scraps, try my new stamps and different techniques.  So I'd like to share my latest page with you:

This page is layer upon layer of paint, scrap papers, crate paper, spray inks and of course stamps.  

The beautiful thing about art journaling, just like mixed media is that there are NO RULES.  You can have as many or as little layers and elements as you want.  An art journal can be very personal, a place to express your inner most feelings or not.  It's all up to you but I think you'll always find that it's definitely a place to grow and nurture your creativity.

You'll be able to experiment with new mediums, ideas and color combinations.  Then over time it'll be fun to look back at your pages and see the evolution of your style and creativity.

If you'd like to try art journaling or mixed media, we have a WONDERFUL new Mixed Media Kit available.  This kit is truly filled with an AMAZING assortment of products for your creative amusement and I HIGHLY recommend it to all of you.  This beautiful kit is so versatile, all of the items can be incorporated into scrapbooking and card making too.  So please don't think of it as just for "Mixed Media" or "Art Journaling", it can be used on anything you want.

Well friends, I hope I've inspired to try something new or if you already art journal, to keep on going!  Thank you all so much for joining me today, below you'll find links to all of the stamp sets I used on my art journal page.
