I've been wanting to start an art journal for a while now... a long while! Finally the composition notebooks I was wanting to use went on sale for school and I got one... I know I'm cheap and I admit it! I painted the cover black with a strip of lime green along the binding and I glued a piece of ribbon along the transition between paint colors. Here is the first page in the book:
I REALLY like it!! I had so much fun and it was really relaxing; so easy to create. I didn't worry once about if I was going to ruin it... like I sometimes do when creating scrapbook pages. I used a bunch of layers of paint in all different colors and I stamped on it with "stamps" that I found around the house.
Thanks for looking!
