Art journaling

Next year I am making it my mission to get creative and take some chances in my sketchbook. Who's with me on this?! I haven't always been great about it because I often want things to look "perfect". And they never really do anyway, so why strive for something so unattainable? It's a sketchbook, it's supposed to look messy. And fun. And artsy. And maybe even a little fartsy. Whatever that looks like.Amy Tangerine Art JournalEnter the permission slip I have given myself to just have fun with the supplies I have on hand. Though I love many things from Tim Holtz, I find myself a little intimidated to use some of the awesome tools and supplies. Well, this is something I have to let go of too, and it turns out I had a lot of fun just playing around one afternoon during Jack's nap.Amy Tangerine Art JournalAmy Tangerine Art JournalAmy Tangerine Art JournalAmy Tangerine Art JournalAmy Tangerine Art JournalI chose colors that were appealing as well stamps with inspiring messages. Loved this little creative exercise. Do you art journal?
