"JOYFUL AND FREE"

An art journal page I did with my mixed-media students.  I give them instructions and then we all work together.  It's a lot of fun.  The birds are cut free-hand from scraps.  Lots of stamping and paint in the background.  Hope you like it.  Let me know what you think.  I love hearing your comments.

I love this art journal page! I have recently started one, and I must admit none of my pages have looked this great. I will definitely look here for some inspiration. Definitely going to be following you now. Glad I found this on the swap! :)
