Learn Something New Everyday

Happy Monday!

I have just a quick post, today because I am in the middle of a creative wave and I don't want it to end!

Every September, Shimelle Laine does a class called "Learn Something New Everyday". This is my second year participating, but I am ridiculously behind. Last year I did this mini album and I liked it, but I wanted to do more of an art journal this year. Which sounded like a good idea at the time, but it is a lot more work!!

I wanted to try techniques from some of my favourite art journaling videos (Christy Tomlinson, Donna Downey and Tim Holtz) and I also just did scrapbook type entries.

So, I still have about 10 days left to do in the album, but these are my favourites, so far.

I have to say that I'm having a lot of fun just playing with all my ink, paints and sprays. I haven't really done this kind of art in a while and it's feeling really good. I might just have to keep an art journal going all year round!

Thanks for looking!

Your kind comments always bring a smile to my heart and I appreciate every one!
