“A Starry Night” – My first Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone!

So today’s project is very different for me, I’ve never created an art journal page before, but I’ve watched many, many tutorials on youtube about them and decided to buy my first journal. Well after about 5 weeks of letting it sit there and collect dust I came across Marta’s (of Maremi Smallart) ‘Breaking the Blank Page” series on her youtube channel and watched all of them over a few days and suddenly couldn’t help myself. I was so inspired and had so many ideas floating around in my head that I decided to go for it! And here is the result:

 

 

I had a lot of fun creating this despite my nervousness at trying something new. The moon is my hubby’s favorite part:

 

 

And as much as I love the moon & stars, my fav are the trees and mushrooms. Partly because I absolutely love everything about trees and mushrooms but mostly because of how the gorgeous BoBunny DP looks on them :O)

 

 

 

Here is Part 1 of the video tutorial:

For any of you out there hesitating on beginning an art journal I hope after looking at my page & watching my videos you feel inspired & encouraged to go for it. But if you need an extra dose of inspiration & encouragement, here is a link to the first video in Marta’s wonderful “Breaking the Blank Page” series: Art Journaling For Beginners Part 1

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative and safe day Everyone :O)
