Hello everyone!  

I'm stepping out of my oh, so comfy, comfort zone these days and playing more and more with all sorts of inks and media and having a messy blast with it too.   

I started making an art journal, inspired by so many I've seen on the Internet, and wanted to share my first page (ever) with you.  Let me know what you think.

I'm also entering it in the Stamplorations Mixed Media ARTplorations challenge for August 2015 "Use a Stencil".  This is a challenge for anything but a card.  

I wish the photo was better.  It was difficult to get a good picture as it's the first page in the new journal and it doesn't want to lay flat.  The stencil I used on this page was Tim Holtz "Burlap".  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll leave me a comment about my first art journal page!

What a wonderful job on your first page, no one would believe it is though. I love the birds and that is one of my fave quotes. Enjoy your new messy, inky journey, as I already have enjoyed seeing your creation. I did my first canvas a while back and had so much fun, need to come up with something else.
Take care and enjoy the rest of the summer, fall is fast approaching.
hugs, Patti
