Well I'm so happy with my little art journal page today, it's actually an old diary that I was given but never used. After perusing the internet at the end of last year and finding that lots of people art journal in books, I thought it would be a great idea to do this myself....

                              I went through my cupboards and found a garden diary, it only had limited writing in it, mainly just lines, presumably for noting down ideas for the garden - well, apart from crafting, gardening is also a passion but I was just too excited about the idea of painting over all the pages and so seeing as it happened to be December, I thought, perfect timing, I can start an art diary next year....  a bit of journalling about what's going on in my week but mainly art....

           Well, I've found that if you paint in an old book..... that you haven't paid for ........... you are a bit more relaxed about the art you create - not surprising I guess.   It has been a bit arduous to keep up with writing a little something for everyday of the year but sometimes I create pages that I really like, including the one below..... was just fun and I loove the two little bears, that was the free stamp with the January edition of the Craft Stamper.

The background was a cling-film technique from MixedMediaMorsels by Cat Hand, then some stencilling. I've also been practising a bit of doodling, so I doodled the trees from scraps I had and doodled a matching border.
