Art Journal Cover

Well hello there my crafty friends!!  I have been wanting to create for a very long time an art journal.  Just by looking at our scrapbook albums, we can see how far we have progressed.  Have you been there??  Compare your first album to one you have just completed or are currently working on.  For me, the growth and changes has been incredible!!

Well, i've discovered that telling our stories is not always just about all the pretty paper.  Now don't get me wrong, I eat, sleep and breath scrapbooking, and I always will.  I have just discovered another step in the creative process that I want to succeed at.  It's called mixed media, and I want to document where I am today and where will my creativity take me on my journey into this fantastic world of creativity!  Remember, attempting to be creative is my escape from this crazy world we live in and my crazy day to day life.

I have been adding little bits of mixed media into my scrapbook pages here and there, but this is my very first strictly mixed media creation!!  it is the cover of my journal.  Notice the title, no rules, no limits!!

It was so freeing to me to just create, that there is no right or wrong!!  there truly are no rules and no limits to what you can create!!

I am truly excited to be sharing more of my mixed media are with you through this blog.  But as i said before, i will never stop sharing with you all my scrapbook pages, cards and tags!!  It's all part of the process  of creativity for me!

Here are a few close up shots of the front page of my art journal:
