Art Journal

While taking the CC101 class, it got my interests into Art Journals and distressing pages.  There are so many mediums out there, I figured this could be so fun!  So while on the prowl of YouTube, I came across some GREAT resources on how to start one.  This is my first attempt.  My husband got me this journal for my birthday a couple of years ago, and I wasn't quite sure what to do with it.  It's all made of handmade papers, and soft leather outer wrapping.  I've decide that I can do an art journal on these hand made papers, but I have to be really careful, as they're so delicate, but it was fun to try this, and something I'm definitely going to continue.  I also bought 2 more journals at our local art supply store, made of Cold Press Water Color paper, so when I want to get really dirty and inky, I can try it in those books.  But I really like the way this turned out.
