Hi there, today I'm sharing a new project I've started. I love art journals!  I love that there are no rules & you can just play with all your fun paints & textures.  I really wanted to start a journal so I finally decided what I would do.  My journal is going to be mostly an inspirational journal & will also incorporate some paper piecing into it.
So, today I'm sharing with you my first page.  I had so much fun making this page.  First off, I started with this fun new pattern. I Long to Be Yours

I started with some watercolors and played with those, fun!  Next I did some misting with a stencil.  I also decided to use the negatives from cutting my stencil and scattered those on the page.  After that I did some random stamping around the page.  I added my water-colored title & then my paper piecings.  Those giraffes are just the cutest!  I'm loving all the color combos & paper combos we have been seeing on the
 fan page.  I also cut a few extra of the tiny hearts & scattered those on the page.

This was so much fun!  You're going to be seeing more of this from me :)  Maybe you'll can help me out a bit.  I haven't made the cover for my journal, yet.  I want to use a quote that I saw some time ago.  It was something about being creative & messy.  I can't remember it & can't find it.  I'm hoping one of our readers will know the quote & share it with me.
Have a GREAT weekend everyone!  I hope you get some scrappy time!
