Trying something new..

Hello sweet people!

One of my secrets is that I adore art journaling and always envy the persons who are so good at it. I bought paints, pens, special stamps, inks etc to start art journaling but I never had the courage or thought I was good enough.. Thinking of what kind of layout I wanted to make for the scrap yourself blog made me think of this little secret of mine. Yesterday night I just wanted to get messy with paint so I tried my hand at doing a page.

I bought the Pink Paislee parisian album and some refills and I just want to make the jump into doing a combination of scrapbooking and art journaling. Why not? Can I make mistakes? sure! Will that matter? no way.. so I challenge you to just take a jump at whatever you have as a little secret and just do it!!

Here is the 5x7 art journal layout I created using the art supplies I bought for art journaling.

It includes some Basic Grey paper from the basics collection, MME lost and found sticker, Tim holtz stamps, October afternoon seaside paper and a Echo Park pink heart. I also had to include some Studio Calico sunshine misting and some Ranger stickles!

It might not be as artsy as some of the art journaling out there, but I learned there is no right or wrong and.. well I totally like it.. so it makes me happy. Thats the point right?!

Now go think of a little secret and take a chance at it! 

Happy creating!
xo Danielle
