Square and Words

Hi All!

Another warm day here and we had a walk into town and back and we were pleased to come home as it is very busy with all the people on holiday. Love to see them having a great time though.

At Art Journal Journey this time the theme is a square and at Our Creative Corner they have asked for Words, Words Words. I made something that fits in with both.


The words are very appropiate for me as this is only my second page on my art journal journey and I am still feeling my way really. I used lots of distressed ink colours on sponges and stamps by Chocolate Baroque and Personel Impressions. Then I got busy with felt tips and imagination. It made me happy making it and feel I am learning something about journal pages -well really I feel the idea of them may be to just enjoy being you :)

Hope everyone's day is going well

Love Chrissie x

  2. I'm sure you're right about the enjoying being you in journalling, and that shines through in this page... I love the bold colours over that delicate inky background, and the sentiment is absolutely brilliant. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.

  4. and I forgot... you are right on the way---- it´s so much to learn about yourself by making art journaling..
    it´s the path to ourselves...

    and it´s for us ... only for us... and the most stampers always make cards and things for others....

    so it´s a special gift to yourself !
    Isn´t this exciting!?
