These days I am also into Art Journals and cards, my own style of art journaling with a touch of folk art of course. I like to keep my art journals and cards flat, they still have the usual folk art touches in the same way as decorative painters usually paint. I do use my own painted cut-outs attached to the page along with stamping, embossing etc.
I work on watercolour paper or Media paper depending on the project I am working on.
These two photographs are part of an art journal I have made and painted ready for Mountains and Rivers Convention in May this year. 12 pages in all. They are purposely made ready for the workshop and leave areas of each page unfinished ready for the students to add personal touches if and when they would like.
I am already working on my next art journal and I will share my work with you when I have completed some pages.
