On Valentine’s day was the first edition of Connie‘s Art Journal Love Day.
This is a HUGE party celebrating our love for our Art Journal.
I have been art journaling for 2 years 1/2 now. Only. Like it’s been forever, like a part of me I cant get rid of.
My art journal and I are in love, he forgives me the long time no see and greets me with open arms everytime I come back to him, with a smile and a ” I missed you dear !”.
To make it fun, she is having a giganormous giveaway on her blog, where people are giving aways stuff and sharing about their art journals. Find more about it here: Art journal love day party.
Here is my participation.
I really really like how it turned how. I love using india ink and my nib pen; it reminds me the long pages I used to write with one when I was a kid (and my hand full of ink that wouldn’t go away).
This is a continuation of what I was talking about in my last blogpost, that it finally all begins with self-love.
I tried to do a brown-skin girl, and the result is not good. There is copic markers (that do not like my journal paper at all as blending was just impossible to achieve), fluid acrylic and panpastels just for the face :s. Next time, I will try with my NeoColors II, may be easier.
I like her anyway !
It is a huge breakthrough for me… it all begins with self-love.
