Art Journal swap

The Yahoo group that I belong to is having a swap of art journal pages (the first one) with a theme of 'Things I like'.  Twelve of us are taking part and we send two pages per month to the next on the list so a long-term commitment.
Sat down today for a brainstorming session, a solitary one, and came up with a list for my pages and top of the list is my home.  It means so much, the centre of my life, so it had to be the inspiration for the first set of pages. The house stamp is Paper Artsy and the tops of the 'houses' on the second page are actually beach huts from a CI plate


I'm still very new at the journalling so I hope my partner likes these.

Here's a card that's going with the pages - used my new owl stamp, inked background and my copics.  Can see this stamp featuring in future pages, and in my AB as I love him too.


Had to use my artistic skills (I can just about manage a branch ha ha) to draw the branch otherwise he would have fallen to the floor.

Your journal pages are lovely, what a great way to use the beach hut stamp - some great lateral thinking going on there. I saw the owl stamp and Harrogate and was nearly tempted but I had spent far too much already - hay ho.

Hi Ann,

Your art journal pages are beautiful! I can't imagine you being a beginner at this. You have a natural talent, for sure.

The owl card is really sweet too.

Hugs,
Kay
