My New Love - Mr. Art Journal :-)

Welcome friends,

I have discovered a new fascinating subject for me, it combines words and pictures. Surprising that it has not grabbed me earlier, because I was always trying to tell stories with my projects. Probably it had to come to maturity, the more it excites me now! The foundation for this I laid in April with my post's Geboren um zu leben and Because I'm happy
From the idea of a Pensieve by Prof. Dumbledore (Harry Potter) I've always been fascinated to be able to store memories, thoughts and feelings easily, on the one hand they can not blow my head then ;-), but above all, they are also rescued from oblivion!

 Time - Rad der Zeit

Sometimes you get the feeling of being overrun by the wheels of time, you know that?  
like a mighty wave...

Since there seems to be no specific regulations on this subject, I have created my own targets. It's for me a space to experiment and document, capture memories. Things, that's  have really moved me in my life, which are important to me!
At the same time it is also a way to break out of this illusory world and  call a spade a spade honest and sincere, without thinking about the consequences.

Supply list: mask stencil gears and stencil words
white gesso with palette knife on grit band (Gitterband)
staz on ink pad: jet black and white
texture and motif stamps (Prima, La Blanche, Viva Decor)

black and white contrast effect

that was just the beginning of a series of art journaling pages, I had incredibly great time working on the pages of an old craft calendar!
and I hope you will see more and more ;-)

I want to entering my new Art journaling project into the following challenges:
Art journaling is a new topic for me (esp. the work with words, but i used old friends how white gesso
and new technique for me - stamp on gesso) 
Happy crafting
LG Kerstin
