National Scrapbooking Day Art Journal

Hi everyone! I had so much fun on Cynthia Gagen's Creative Edventures Live broadcast today. What fun! I had technical difficulties which took quite a few minutes to be sorted through, but I managed to get online, with a camera and got it working. I did my usual style of art journal page, incorporating scrapbook elements, textures using texture paste, cardboard, canvas, lace, etc. Take a look below:

This is the full-sized page, in my 9X12 mixed media journal. I like the quote with the butterfly because it implies that if we learn from today's life lessons, we can transform ourselves. Here are some close ups of the textures:

Texture paste covers the strings from the canvas for added movement

Additional cardboard texture and lace tuck out from under the cluster
I really enjoyed the show. I hope you all did too. Congrats to Carol who won a hand-made mixed media journal from me. Stay tuned for more projects to come later this week!

Have a great weekend, and a great remainder of National Scrapbook Day!
