Art Journaling :)

I have a confession.........

I haven't journaled very much at all over the past couple weeks.

Now.... I'm wondering if cleaning, moving and re arranging my craft space counts towards it though?????

While playing around in my journal the other week I came across a very cool technique using glue :) of course it was Helmar I had spilt a little bit along the edge of a page I was creating and at the time I didn't think anything of it but once it came time to inking the glue ended up resisting the ink :) just like the Pink Paislee papers, I have created a sheet with which glues work and which don't feel free to stop by the Helmar blog to see my results

I created an art journal page by doodling in Helmar Premium Craft Glue over my page, few hearts, a word, I've used a mask before and painted the glue over it.  

I then sprayed some glimmermist over areas of my paper, blotted it and added some distress ink,

Then I embellished with a flower, tickets, bird, writing, really whatever you want, thats the beauty of an art journal, you do what and there is no right or wrong :)

Also, the glue works well with stamps :) it does take a little bit of experimenting to work out the perfect amount but you can achieve some AWSOME results

Here's just a few other pages I've been working on

do LOVE my tag, I'm going to insert it into my journal somewhere I just haven't worked out where or how yet

So thanks for stopping by

Thanks for sharing!!

Love it! Gorgeous finished pages too!
I've almost finished one art journal page. Not sure if it's worthy of putting on my blog. But at least I had a go!
Thanks for the nudge!
