I'm having lots of fun and learning a lot about myself with this art journaling. I find it to be so much fun! Anyhow, the page on the left is not a drawing of mine. I printed it off etsy. Sometimes I'll find something particularly inspiring and have to print it. This is just such a piece. I don't know what it is about her, but I really like her. Her hands, her face, her hair.

My art is on the right. I've used a whole lot of mixed media in this. Gold leaf, cadbury egg wrapper, glitter, paint, pencil crayons, ball point pen, black ink...

I've taken to 'laminating' my pages with packing tape so that they don't stick together. I am having way too much fun with these are journals, and I always feel a lot more settled after having done a page...

Thank you! You know what else is really nice? I've gotten away from drawing and sketching over the years, and this brings me back to it. It is such a fundamental part of me that it's nice to be doing it again...
