First page in my new journal

I've been busy tonight creating my first page in my new journal. This is the inside of the cover and my first page. I've used only inks to create this one. And of course some pencils and some liquid pearls,but they are hard to see on the picture.

From boardgame to artjournal.....

Yeah proud me...I've made my first handmade artjournal. I found an old backgammon game while we were moving my mom last week, found much more stuff that I can use for artjournaling. Since I've started artjournaling I see something usefull in everything. 
I covered it with gesso and glued some papernapkins on (found those to at my mom's) I just loved the bright colors
After that I started messing with paint and colorwash and at one point I thought I completly ruined it. Too bad I didn't take pictures of the whole process. When I thought the front was finished It turned out like this. At the front there is nothing left of the napkins. The pictures don't capture  the texture and the color that well but anyway this is the front.
I've cut some watercolor paper and binded them into the cover (inspired by Teesha Moore). I am very pleased with what it turned into. I start to believe there is a bit of an artist hidden in me. Yeah again!

A nieuwe pagina, het woord "listen"ging helemaal fout, maar ja. Ik moet het er maar mee doen. Toch wel een leuke pagina geworden.

I finished another page..It went totaly wrong with the word "listen" What a bummer. But it is just what they say... Embrace imperfaction!!

Mijn eerste artjournal page is een feit.... althans de eerste die de moeite waard is om te delen. Het begin is er. Heerlijk om te kliederen en te plakken en te knippen. Ben geinspireerd door Sandra van der Geest, zij maakt zulke leuke dingen.

My first artjournal page ever. Well actualy it is the first one worth sharing. It is a start. So much fun playing around with paint and glue. I was ispired by sandra van der Geest. She makes such beautyful pages.
