ART JOURNAL PAGES

Sometimes when I play in my art journal it seems like it just happens on it's own.  I prep pages and leave it.  Later I come back and start flipping through and something peaks my interest and things start happening.  This page was prepped with a bunch of scrapbook paper strips I had lying around.  I wanted to use them up so one day I just glued them all down.  It stayed like that in my book for a long time.  You can't hardly see them for all the other stuff that happened on top, but that's just the fun of it.  The right page has a quote that says, "Expect GREAT things from God, Attempt GREAT things for God." By William Carey.

Coleen, I love to look at art journals, and yours are no exception! I tried art journaling once and I just don't think I have what it takes. Ha!

Elizabeth keeps several art journals. What do you use to attach things to your pages? E uses Mod Podge, I wondered if there was something better.

I like the way the paper fills in the background on these. Great pages, as always, Coleen!

These are so wonderful. I do the prep thing too but never quite the way you did. I like!

Coleen said...

ModPodge is great Ronda, but diluted Elmer's works great too and probably cheaper. That's what I use.

Coleen said...

Yes, annie! everyone does it a bit different. That's what makes it so fun to see how others work. Thanks for stopping by.

Coleen said...

Thanks, Mimi,,you're a sweetie.

Coleen said...

Thanks, Patti, you are always an encourager. I so appreciate it. If I didn't teach so many classes I'd do more art, but I love teaching too, so it is what it is.

Thank you for visiting, Monica. You bless my heart.
