My World art journal page






I had a page in my art journal that I had stamped a bunch of different stamps that I was sent for free. They were red rubber and unmounted so I didnt know what they were. I stamped them out to see what they were. So I just had this page that I had planned on tearing out of my journal. Today I was looking at it and decided to just do my page right over it. I wanted to do the challenge for The Craft Barn, y challenge and yellow, so I took the definition yourself. Plus one of the stamps is like some kind of idol with a sun above its head, so I painted it yellow. I went with yourself as my definition and then painted and added stuff that inspires me. I love chevrons and washi tape. I love butterflies and these colors, tags and anything that looks vintage. 
I think I am happier with this page than any I have done. I wasnt trying to copy any one else I was just putting stuff I love and I am totally happy with this.

Its always good when a project ends up being fun and personal. This all started with a page you you were going to throw away and by adding 'yourself' you have made a lovely tribute to all the things you love and personified your quote. Well done.

This is lovely! There's something so satisfying about creating your own journal! It's ages since I've added to mine but this inspires me to dig out the journal, blow the dust off and get stamping!
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Southern Girls!
