I have discovered Art Journalling

WOW!!! I am being a good Blogger aren't I???

I have been exploring my artistic side for quite awhile now and I have journeyed into the land of art journalling. I have created my own journal from paper, chipboard and washi tape.... LURVE washi tape

Well here is some piccies of my finished journal waiting for me to fill it with loveliness....
I literally make this from a Manila folder, music paper, October Afternoon paper, glue, chipboard and washi tape....

A close up of my bottle cap, I have covered it in versamark ink then heat embossed it with distress embossing powder then created the centre. Love this effect....

Here is my opening page with my title, I plan to use this book for special memories of my girls, I have also altered a kraft envelope I had been hoarding. I want to be able to put in mementos in this book as well.

 Here is a photo of the side of the Journal,  used chipboard in the spine to make it more sturdy, then covered it in washi tape

Here is a close up of how I joined my pages together with layers of washi tape (have I mentioned how much I love this stuff???)

Well I hope you like this little number I am very proud of it, please let me know what you think??

Of course all of the washi tape that I have used in this book was from D-Lish Scraps so make sure you rush over and buy some now!!
