New art journal pages

A few more art journal pages done over the holidays.
I did this one yesterday as part of the January art journal over on the Milliande site. I used the given circular template of the zebras, which you then fill in with zen doodleing and then cut up to make a journal page. I enjoyed the zentangle doodleing even though it took ages! When I cut the zebra heads out they reminded me of merry-go-rounds, hence the page!

A whimsy of my daughter and me! (this ones not quite finished!)

Inspired by the Taking Flight book by Kelly Rae Roberts that I got for Xmas. An amazing book, I recomend it!


I added sequins and sparkle to this one.

A test page using my new Dylusions spray inks.

A background done with my new Dylusions paints. I liked the background so much I dont want to add anything else to it!
If you havn't checked out the video below of my sketchbook project journal, please take a look!
TFL,

I have that book! I am ashamed to say my sis got me it LAST Christmas (not the one just gone) and I still haven't read it even though it was on my wishlist. I got so bogged down in poopy stuff last year though. I am determined to read all my books and do all my classes this year. Mainly cos there is a whole load more on my list ;)

Finished my January page for Kathyrn Wheel challenge tonight so will photo thatin better light tomorrow.

Your pages are all so gorgeous and all with such different styles but - I don't know - something about them all is definitely Sam if that makes sense.

Your pages are fabulous... you make me want to try spray inks!

Congratulations on finishing your sketchbook project! YAY!!!! It is amazing... beautiful colors, textures, words - I love it all! (The video is fantastic... so, so cool to see all of your pages in one place & the text across the screen was very helpful)
