My first Journal page

Art Journaling is something I have admired for a while out there in blog land and watching on you tube and it seems that anything goes you just have to express yourself which I do find hard at times, you just have to let it take you there, so when Isa set a challenge at the Craft Barn for a journal page I thought oh ! but the theme is building and mt thought went to the difference between town and country have lived in both


I've used my A5 sketch pad a variety of crayons inks and pens I really didn't think I would end up with anything worth showing but the OH thought it turned out ok and that's a compliment from him lol
There are some wonderful inspiration on the Craft Barn blog
Oh you might notice a spelling mistake but those who know me would think it odd is there wasn't one somewhere spell checker is a godsend
TTFN and thanks for stopping by

That's fabulous - I thought you had used rubber stamps - didn't realise you had hand drawn it.
Great page - Hugs, Neet
