Art Journal Page

So I thought I'd share my very first Art Journal page just for the fun of it.  Since this one, I've done many more that I like better so this one has been pushed to the end of the 'blog' line.  

Being my first page, I was more or less just 'playing' with all my stuff.  Mainly stencils, sprays, stamps & gesso.  I did add some rub-ons at the end and did a wee bit of doodling.

Here's a close up of my favourite part of the page.  I used a Tim Holtz mask and gesso'd over it leaving the pretty background showing through.  I also added some coloured Conte Crayons around the edges to give it that soft antique smudgy look.  

I'm playing along with the 'Color this Quote' over at Artists in Blogland for June.  "May there be peace and prosperity within your walls." Psalms 122.7  I think this quote relates to this page and reminds me to just be at peace with what ever I am creating.  Sometimes I get too caught up with it being perfect or having to have this perfect plan/vision of what it is I want to make.  Just go with it I say!!!

Also, check out the inspiration over at Creative Every Day!  Lots of wonderful art to be seen!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great week!  I'll be back tomorrow with a cute little Fathers Day tag for By Lori Designs!  I know, its been a while huh?
