Art Journal

I recently joined a group on Facebook called Journal 52 where each week they give you a prompt and over the year you build up an art journal.
I have never tried one of these before but it looked interesting so I thought I would give a it a go, it's the perfect chance to get inky and try out some techniques that I havn't always got the nerve to try on my scrapbook pages.
I started with my cover and this is how it turned out

I started with a gessoed book page and just built it up from there with inks, mists texture paste stencils and stamps. After having so much fun with this page I then moved right on to week 1
Week 1 Prompt: Up, Up, and Away!

We’re setting soar to a new year, a new adventure, and a new story to tell!

For this prompt, think of some things that float or fly through the air – a hot air balloon, a butterfly, an airplane, a bird, clouds, or even a made-up creature from your imagination. Draw, paint, collage (or a combination of all these!) – what “Up, Up, and Away!” means to you. For some, it could be about finding your wings or learning to fly or letting go or setting dreams off to flight…whatever you can imagine!
 This page represents reaching above and beyond my "limits" I am a great lover of quotes and I found this one on Pinterest "Reach High, for the stars lie in your soul, it was perfect for what I wanted.
The pages are sort of as quick or as long as you want to make them so I might have half a chance of having a 52 page journal by the end of the year! I do know that I had fun making them and will be creating more very soon
