Do you have an art journal that you work in?

What a productive day I've had! I've been thinking, researching and planning on creating my first art journal. FINALLY, today was the day! Not only was it easy, but FUN! I used a piece of my old, worn quilt as a cover, and sewed in my cardstock. Then, I painted each page with acrylics and water to prep each page for when I'm ready to create. Here is my first page:

Lately, I'm very attracted to the combination of canvas, paint, stamps and fabric. So, here is my first attempt. I started with Claudine Hellmuth's sticky-back canvas and things just kept evolving from there. Back to the craft table:)
P.S. Don't forget to get in on the Blog Candy that I'm giving away at Handmade-Today.com!

Every page provides mountains of beautiful inspiration. When my autographed copy came this week, I had to hide in my craft room and savor every single page of yummy-ness:D

So, about a week or so ago, my Mom and I were playing around in my craft room. I was making paper flowers, and she decided to play with some Tim Holtz masks, glimmer mist and alcohol inks. she did a couple samples and then complained that she hated them. I, on the other hand, thought they were just fine. So, in making my V-Day cards, I decided to use her "garbage".
Her sample was a 4.5x5.25 cardstock, with a plain white mask and glimmered with Velvet Red Glimmer Mist. I tore it apart and used one corner on the left, and the other adhered to a tag. Of course I had to distress them up a bit and add some gold Schmooch to it:D
She didn't recognize it as one of her rejects:) Lesson: There are no mistakes in art!
Love you, Mom!
