My first Art Journal.

I have ventured into Art Journalling for the first time.
Irene a really lovely friend gave me a Pink pig sketch book.
She had hand embroidered a gorgeous cover for it so I really had to use it for something special.
Some of the pages are still waiting to be journalled on.
I have used paints/stamps and collaged elements.












Having filled up my first journal I have decided to explore what ideas are out in cyberspace. The first course that I signed up for is on Willowing and friends. Here is my effort, using water colour and acrylic paints for the first lesson:
