Art Journal Fun

I believe that all creative time is time well spent. Creative time making something just for me, is time I don't often spend.

I have been taking an Art Journal class and I have to tell you, I am loving it so much. When I am in class, I have a smile on my face the whole time and I just want to soak up all the information I can! Unfortunately, not enough information comes out of a class for my liking, so I know the best way to gain knowledge, is to get my hands dirty (literally!) and practice!

I have always been a creative person and have often moved from outlet to outlet when I get bored. While I am not bored with what I am currently working on, I have known for a while that I wanted to work with paints.

I bought myself an old book at the Goodwill store, and decided to put my love of writing, scrapbooking and journaling and combine it all with art journaling. I can't wait to teach a class on this!

This book is all for me, about the moments that have changed me.

Take a look, this is what I have been working on.

I plan on spending the whole weekend working on it, and I have to say, I am so excited to explore this new creative outlet. I love to look back and see the progress I have made and love seeing how I get better and my craft. I know a year from now I will look at this and wish I had done better, but for now, I am having fun. That's really what it's all about anyway right?

I hope that you will stop by and take a look around at my crafting blog A Pinch of Creativity and see some of my other projects and recipes.

Thanks for stopping by!
