I have been trying to get some inspiration this morning. I have found a fun monthly prompt >

I have found these pages to be a new twist on my art journaling. You can find them on pinterest by searching joirnaling prompts. I went with the “look up Memorial Day” prompt. I did just that and it brought me to Wikipedia the picture it brought up was Arlington Cemetery. That was all I needed as inspiration to do this page. I also love what the poppy represents so I wanted to include it as well. I hope you like it and please keep those who died fighting for our freedom in your thoughts this weekend. Making this page will help me remember the sacrifices made.

Map Journaling from Big Piney, WY to Las Vegas, NV

We are heading back home from spring break. We really enjoyed staying at our favorite casino South Point. It was around 90 degrees the whole time we were there. It will be half that when we get back home :(.

My previous post has me starting my map in my art journal of our trip. I think I have finished it! I hope you like it. I hope you try it out and show me your results. It was so much fun to do! My materials used were a composition book with gessoed pages, koi watercolors, stabilo pens and Tim Holtz black distress marker.

Art Journal

The beginning of 2015 had me feeling excited. I was ready to make it the best year yet! I was scrolling through Pinterest and my cousin was pinning art journal ideas. Apparently I’ve been out of the loop, I had no idea what an art journal was but it looked Awesome! So I started pinning fun things for my art journal.

My journal is just a composition book I had laying around. I love to learn all the fun techniques that I can make beautiful backgrounds with. There are so soooo many artists that I have been following and it amazes me what they do.
My only problem is, I work all day and have very little time to do my art Journal. The day I have found to work the best is Sunday. I usually base my ideas off of what I learned in church that day. I think I’m going to make a Spiritual journal and an everyday.

This is the cover of one of my journals. It is a crinkled lunch bag even the flowers and the white are all lunch bags. I modge pogged over the top. I’m sure I’ll add a little more depth at some point but I kind of like it. Especially for me coming up with the idea on my own.
