Art Journal beginnings

Hello crafty people!  I hope your first week of 2019 is going well.  We are back into our usual routine today and although it was lovely having time off I think I was ready to get  back into normal daily life!

In my last post I listed five goals for 2019 and one was to start an art journal to practice some mixed media techniques.  I wasn’t sure where to start but I remembered I had joined an art journal facebook group ( Nina Ribena’s Art Journal Prompts and more ) so I jumped into the latest prompt.

The challenge was to create a bokeh sky page with fireworks for New Year.  Somehow in my vast selection of craft supplies I didn’t have any fireworks so I found a flower stencil that I decided could pass as a firework burst!

It’s the first page for my art journal and the first time I’ve tried the bokeh technique.  I was quite pleased with it, although I hope I will get much better over the course of 2019.  Do any of you have an art journal?  Do you have any resources that helped you to develop mixed media pages?

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog, I’d love to hear how your year has started and if you have made a start to any crafty plans for 2019 yet.
