Mine Mine Mine:  It's the Journey

I often don’t do things just for me. I suppose that’s not completely true, I swap ATC’s because I enjoy it, I am doing an art journal swap that I enjoy but I rarely make things to keep so I can look and enjoy my own work. This is the first page in my very own art journal, my first one.

It is small and I LOVE it. I bought a small travel journal at a thrift store and I thought it would make a great art journal. It’s 5 1/2 by 2 3/4 inches.

Also I just bought a couple of spray inks/paints and they are so much fun!!

Sorry about the flash in the photo, the flash pic shows the colors best so I kept it.
