I have fancied having a dabble in art journalling for a while but given I am not "arty" in the slightest as I have no drawing skills whatsoever and all the art journalling pages I have looked at on blogs are absolutely fab I never felt brave enough to have a go.
This year however there is a six month art journey on UK Scrappers led by the lovely Leanie who is a CJ teamie of mine
I have decided to join in but having a limited budget at the moment and not being sure how I will get on with this I havent gone for a fancy journal as a base just a small A6 watercolour paper pad picked up in the pound shop near my parents caravan. I am also trying to use inks, paints and pens I have and not spend any money on more stash so we will see how that goes. If I get into this then I may venture into a bigger and a better journal but we shall see.
At the EK crop last weekend Sally brough the art journal she completed last year in to show me and I decided to be brave and made a start with a little title page. I was pleased with this and thanks to Sally for the use of the stamps I used.
From the first prompt on UKS I came up with this double spread - I am not really very pleased with it - its lacking something and I will probably go back and do something else on the page but its a start at least. Im looking forward to seeing how this journey progresses and hope to do my next page for this weeks prompt at the Stewarton Crop on Sunday
