Art Journal, hmm maybe

Tiddly Inks is going Art Journal for there challenge #65. Let me tell you when I saw the challenge I was in awe at the creations and then I said "well I won't be joining this one because there is no way I can let my mind just ramble with no set boundaries". Then the drill sergeant came out of me and said "what do you mean you can't do it, you haven't even tried, do it, do it, do it!!!" So I ran down to Michaels, got me a big 11x15 pad and stared at my white sheet, lol. Then I saw some Smooch spritzers that I had an never used and thought well lets see what these do and just went from there, don't get me wrong it took me 4 days, but so fun. It's not completely what I had in mind, I visioned a darker room with the butterflies flying toward the beautiful window, but it was extremely fun to make a mess with my unused items and create some randomness. If you haven't tried this I strongly push you to at least try it, you will be amazed with what you come up with and if you don't like it you don't have to post it, like I bravely have!! I wanted you to at least see that I am once again stepping outside that box of mine to try something new, it's all trial and error, now I have something to go off of to do better. I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday and don't forget CTO has the new challenge up with DT #1.

CW stencil work and the dotted areas came out so AMAZING. Love how it looks. I would never have known you've never tried this before, you look like a pro. Great mixed media project.

So glad you could join us for the Tiddly Inks Art Journal challenge.
