art journaling

Hey everyone,

I'm back with a kind of new hobby. ;) I recently discovered art journaling and I'm already in love. I foud out about it via Nathalie Kalbach's Creative Jumpstart.
My problem with scrapbooking is that I always think too much about what's the best way to put something. That's why it always takes me ages to finish one page...
But the cool thing about art journaling is that you can just do ANYTHING. And if it turns out awful, you just flip the page. ;)
So, I've created two pages so far. Not the best of art work, but it makes my creativity flow. It also gives me ideas for new pages in my Rome mini. :D I've finished one page of that as well.
So, first of all here are my two first pages in my art journal. Check the image transfer of the Collosseum of Rome on the second one (the first time I used gel medium).

Of course I've watched some videos on art journal on You Tube. But my very favourite blog is this one by Donna Downey. She is soooo creative and updates regularly. Love it!

I also wanted to show you another birthday card I've made. I just love my new brick template by TCW!

Well, that's all for today. I'm planning to do some more art journaling. Hopefully I can show you soon! Take care.
