365 Art Journal (should be 366 for a leap year)

Today I'm showing my 365 Art Journal. This is the first one I have attempted and I've gotta say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Got really messy but it was fun!!

Kate Crane was a big inspiration to me in starting this. Her work is out of this world, love it!!




The journal is from Asda and was only £4, bargain! I started off covering the pages with pastel pencils rubbed in. Then I went to town with acrylic paint, different kinds of inks, stamps, sequins. I even got my embossing gun out! The circles are cut with punches from Tim Holtz papers. The January is made from thickers and covered in metallic acrylic paint and then edged with distress inks.

The girl is a stamp which Cherry kindly stamped out for me and I coloured it in with distress inks.

Now I've got to try and remember what I did at the beginning of January so I can fill it in!!
