Doodle Garden - First Challenge!

Hi everyone!  I know I announced a little while ago that I joined the brand new Doodle Garden DT, and now we are having our very first challenge!  

Please join us for:

I made an art journal page using Little Marina, Fancy Striped Fish, and Little Seahorse.  Sentiment is from TLC.  I used a stencil for my background along with acrylic paints.  We hope you'll join our Under the Sea challenge and help us start the fun at The Doodle Garden!

I love playing in my art journal - this book started out as a plain old hardcover journal, now it won't shut.  LOL  See how much lovin' it's got?

Yup, those pages have been Gesso'd, painted, stamped, spritzed, colored, inked, sponged, stenciled, embossed, and Mod Podged.  PHEW!  And I just love it.  I love looking through it and knowing it's just for me.  Never really caring if I "screw up" - I just re-Gesso or paint over the boo-boo!  I hope you all have something like this in your art area, something just for you, that makes you smile and makes you feel good.  You deserve it.  :)

OK so come on over and join us at The Doodle Garden, it's going to be a lot of fun!
