I took an old notebook and made it into an art journal. This is my first attempt at mixed media art so bear with me. I used stamps and digital stamps. The girls is from Tickled Pink. The flower is from Tiddly Inks and the Peace is from Beyond the Fringe.  I was inspired by the song Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, one of my personal favs.
