J is for Just...

So, here's the art journal page I started the other night, to help me get through my artist's block. It's for my "A Year In The Life of an Art Journal" project. The project is actually up to the letter L, so I'm a little behind, but that's okay. The word for the letter J is Just. Here's what I did with it...
For this page I used acrylic paint, alpha stickers from K&Co, Love Elsie & Doodlebug, magazine image, postage stamp, dictionary paper, gesso, paper towel, vintage lace, gaffer tape, Purple sparkly felt, Border Word stamp (a gift from my online friend Linda), and butterfly embellishments that were made by Tammy Gray.

Journaling reads:
Art is simply self-expression. However it turns out will be exactly right. Just begin.

Quote is by Von Goethe and reads: "Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace and power in it."

I've also been having fun working on my last circle journal page tonight. It has lots of layers, so it's been taking awhile. I have to let each layer dry before starting the next one. I find that I really enjoy having two projects going at once. It creates a nice energy flow. So now that I am finished with the art journal page, and I have a layer drying on the circle journal layout, I think I will start my SiSversary Yearbook...

I hope you have a super sunshiney Saturday my friends! I will be back tomorrow with another update. Thanks so much for stopping by!
