I have started this blog to help me get my craft projects out for everyone to see. My crafts are my therapy. I find peace in creating special ideas for friends and family. This is a new adventure for me and I plan on enjoying the ride

Art Journal is done!!

Well here it is!!  My art journal is completed.  I say it's finished, but I keep picking it up and adding more to it. I started this journal to help me on my journey with Weight Watchers.  I thought it would be a great tool to keep me motivated.  I had a great time making it and now I can write down my thoughts for each passing week.  The first pic is of the cover which I made using metal from Ten Seconds Studio and egg shells....yes! egg shells!  I saw this idea on Pinterest so I thought I would give it a try.  I love how it came out.  I used fabric to cover the rest of the cover.  All my pages are initally painted with gesso.  I then used everything from stains, distress inks, paints and stamps to complete the pages.  Most of the embellishments are from Tim Holtz and Maya Road.  One great thing about making this journal is I was able to use up a lot of my leftovers from other projects.  Well now onto the fun part...I get to fill it up with all my thoughts and secrets.  LOL!  Stay tuned for more projects.  I already have an idea rolling around in my head.
