Mixed Media Project

Well I finally did it!!!  My first mixed media project.  You have no idea how many times I sat down with the mixed media journal I bought opened it up....staired at the blank page....then closed it.   That first page is intimidating.....

I was watching some of Chrisy Tomlinson's YouTube videos yesterday and then I sat in on Limor Webber's Ustream class last night and I just couldn't help myself.  I hauled out the journal and just started putting paint and paper on the page.  

It was refreshing....I could just create and be creative.  I just let go....  I had fun!!

I used some of Claudine Hellmuth's paints, Gesso and Mat Medium.  The paper line I used is Prima's Rondelle.  OMG  LOVE that paper.

Here are a few pics...  I apologize for the quality of the pictures.  It was like 1am when I finished...there are terrible shadows in my house at that time.  LOL

So I guess this is the start of my art journal journey.  :)

    It really is intimidating at first. I have to remind myself that it is only paper and gesso is my friend!
