Art journal ...with Flair

Happy Friday!

One week left until Valentine's Day! Oh boy!

Just a quick post you know, I can jabber on and on! ;)

I recently acquired an art journal, a Dyan Reaveley DYLUSIONS Journal, from Ranger, found here. I was excited to get one...I wanted the juices to flow. Received it in the mail..and looked at it..felt it...and nothing....A few days passed, and I got inspired. I mean, seriously, what was I expecting?? That the journal would 'just' get me to be creative?? Doesn't work like that. 

I pulled out my Gelatos, and art pencils, and some Unity stamps, and went with it. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Put one of my favorite quotes in there, too. 

I added some Making Memories Word Fetti in there, too.
 I love that stamp--she's perfect for a art journal!
Words to remind me.
I also did the first page. I also used some
Unity stamps again.
So, where am I going wit the art journal?? Not sure. Just have been
wanting to do one for a while. 
Experiment, have fun.
This was quite fun. Even more when you are not
afraid of messing up.

I am linking this up to Unity's Friends with Flair.

That's it for me.
Have a great day.
Be safe. get crafty.

Ha! I had the same experience when I first got my Dylusions journal! It took a while before I opened it and got it messy. I love that quote you used too.
