ArtJournalEveryDayLogo-150If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here.  All of the previous posts can be found archived here.  There is a flickr group for sharing right here.  Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day!  No need to finish anything or even like it.  If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post.  Thanks!

I'm back to share a peek at a few more pages in my art journal.  Last week I believe we left off with some pages I had done while traveling, so I only had a ballpoint pen with me to decorate the pages.

The white paper is a piece of scrap paper, but don't you love how the face peeks out through that heart?  Total accident, but a very happy one!

I put my pen to good use, creating big blocky letters with shadows.

When I prepped the page (before I left home) with the yellow paint, I couldn't bear to paint over this pink area.  Too pretty.  So I left it.  And I like how it stands out.

The stamp set I used for the dates is one that I carved myself.  It's one of my favorites.  I keep saying that I need to make a set like it that people can buy, because it's just so cool!

I love the way this face worked out with the upside down hearts.  The glitter line hits her in just the right place!

I rarely do a spread with a white background, so this one feels a little weird to me.

Since the background was white, I switched my usual black ink for red and I quite like the way it looks.

The colored stripes are washi tape!  It's such an easy way to add color and pattern to your art journal.

The dividing page is a sheet of deli paper which I stitched words to.

Only one entry made it onto this page.  I couldn't bear to do anything but let the pretty feathers shine!

Aren't they pretty?

Well, that's all from here, for now.  Hope you've had a great week!  Today is our last day on set for Scrapbook Soup TV.  The week has been good and exhausting!  I'll share more next week!
