More art journaling pages

On this page I attached a sheet of decorative paper and then a tea label from YOGI tea that says-"whatever you are doing is the most beautiful thing".  Then I surrounded it with roses cut out from the cover of the Pier 1 catalog.
This page is "courage to create" an exercise from Julia Cameron's book- Finding Water.

My art journals

This is a little bookcase that my dad built for me years ago and I use it to display my art journals.

These are two of the different art journals I'm working in right now. One is a large 8x11 Hardback and the other is an altered book that I'm turning into a journal.

Some of my favorite art journalers:
  • pam garrison
  • teesha moore
  • samantha kira harding
  • mary ann moss
  • dawn devries sokol
  • anahata katkin

Mixed Media paintings I'm working on

This is my first post on something very new to me -blogging- I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. I do a variety of painting, mixed media, and art journaling. These are mixed media paintings on 8"x 5" pieces of wood and I use acrylic paint, oil pastels, colored pencil and paper.
My favorite subject to paint is usually always flowers,birds, and butterflies.
