Art Journal Every Day 2016, Enjoy Simple Beauty

I've been following along with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's Art Journal Every Day for several years now. However some time in 2015 I began to slip. Slowly at first, but nevertheless gathering speed and finally grinding to a halt. That being in the past, I'll forget those things which are behind and move forward... trying to do better and be more consistent. Sounds like life, doesn't it? Keep in mind, my One Little Word for 2016 is "Hope".

My art journaling for the most part has consisted of lots of mixed media with very little journaling. Looking at this page, it brings to home how little I seem to have to say (written word, that is). Something else to work on.

My page was an experiment in using Ranger's Perfect Pearls powders in combination with stenciling and stamping. On the base of tissue and gesso, I blended Distress Paints by Tim Holtz. The stencil is one of Donna Downey's by Prima.

I'm linking up my journal page at:
Blazer Designs - Art Journal Every Day

CHA opens this weekend, and I'm anxious to see all the new products. Can't wait for the videos to start showing up with all the new paper and mixed media goodies to tempt us. 

Thanks for stopping by... I really appreciate your visit!
