March #1 Art Journal fun with PaperArtsy - Friends

I've bought an tiny little old ledger from ebay. It's the most perfect size 8" x 5", I love it. I have lots of different sized journals which I dip into now and again to do a page. But this little journal is the only old one I have and the paper quality is so nice and smooth. When the page is painted and dries its lovely to touch, its kinda cold and smooth....does that sound mad?? :)  


I've had a very exciting time playing with the new EclecTica3 PaperArtsy stamps designed by Sara Naumann, they have a distinct art journalling theme to them. I had made 4 journal page samples for the PaperArtsy stand at the Birmingham Stitches show. So this set me off playing in my journal again. PaperArtsy stamps are so great for art journalling anyway, and I was not stuck for any ideas.


I love this sentiment I knew I was going to use it at some point.
Here's a sneaky peak of my first project for this week. Hop along to the PaperArtsy blog to see the journal page in full.


one more



I hope you'll join me for the rest of the week for more inky painty shenanigans
If you'd like to leave me a comment that would be very lovely :)
Thank you

Looking gorgeous... and no, the paper thing isn't at all mad - the feel of an old book, or of handmade paper, or of a particular texture of paper can all give me goosebumps! Your ledger is beautiful...
