I was working in my art journal today. I finished page nine of the paper bella e-zine project (seen below) and wanted to do some more. I used one of my new rubber stamps by Stampers Anonymous. I think they are my favorite stamp company. I just love kids with wings and crowns. Along the side I put the velvet rick-rack I found at Paper Zone. I got it in pink and teal it was so cute. I also bought some chalk pens to see if they are any different than my poster paint pens. They have the chisel tip, which I don't really like and they have a matte finish. They are OK but I like the Sharpie poster paint pens better. After I watered down my acrylic paint daubers they worked so much better and I am loving having them in my portable tote. I discovered today as I was thumbing through my art journal that it is falling apart at the seams. I put a bit of tape on the really bad pages. I am using the Pentalic one with the elastic band and boy is it getting full and bulging. I think it will last me through the summer but that is about it. I will need a new one for fall. Each page is special and it will be so exciting see the whole journal filled up. If I stick with this type of journal, that means I will have four journals each year. Is that a lot? This is my first year to do the art journal thing so I have no idea. I am already thinking about what I am going to do after June is over and I don't have Teresa McFayden giving me ideas. I have a few books on journaling ordered and they should be here this next week. Maybe they will give me an idea of where to head. I have thought of doing a book of quotes and journaling about them. We shall see.
