Lazy Saturdays are wonderful

I adore lazy Saturdays where I can sleep in, or go back to bed, then get up, have some coffee and go to the art room to work in my altered book. It's so relaxing and that's totally what I need right now. A friend asked what the purpose of an art journal is. For me, it's a way for me to work with my hands creatively, try new techniques and put things together, and rid myself of stresses, focusing on positive ideas and mantras.

Here's my latest spread that I did today. I used several layers of gesso, spray inks through stencils, texture paste, scrapbooking papers, found papers, lace, washi tape, inked up canvas bits, stamps, metal embellishments, flowers, and the list could go on. I think you are getting the idea. I like my layers.

The full spread, using inks, stencils, texture paste, found papers and much more.
