May 10: art journal every day

I look forward to working in my art journal, especially now that I've found out it is a great idea to think about just starting something. To not worry about finishing the whole spread all in one day or in one sitting, to simply start it! Of course it is really inspiring to me to come back at another time and pick up where I left off. I really like that!

Yesterday I did a gel medium transfer and sloshed some paint on the page,
then sprayed Perfect Pearls Mists all around: 

Today I added this -click for details:
A fabric butterfly, rubber stamping (CatsLife Press) 
and a photo printed on paper, ripped around the edges . . .


I roughed the photo up with a scrubber to distress it . . . 

Then added more citrine green and gold Lumiere paint.

Then, I added journaling! 

Julie Balzer was talking about journaling, writing in your art journal today and gave some prompts and ideas. Click on her name to read the post. This is the site where I got the idea to try working in an art journal every day. Yes, it is keeping me busy, but is feeding me what I was missing, what I was looking for. This feels good. It is like I am flexing, stretching and strengthening my creative muscles. Thanks, Julie!
