Art Journal- Live the Life You Imagined

Today, I decided to play in my Art Journal. I was browsing around You Tube and saw this video, watched it and tried to practice her techniques to created the background. I did only one page and changed the saying.  I didn't have alot of the same materials obviously, but I improvised. I bought a whole bunch of new things last week and wanted to try them out. So I painted, texture pasted, mod podged, inked and whatever else I could think of.  I have to say I'm in love with gelatos. Very nice medium to use. The jury is out on paint yet, but it could be the kind I have. I love texture paste, but have to practice putting it on because I get very uneven edges, but that's beauty in itself I guess. I like the Faber Castell Pitt Pens. They are a fun thing to use. Charcoal pencils are my new friend too!
