live, create, tell the story


Hey Oddballs!  I am sneaking in today to share a mess of an Art Journal Page.  No seriously, it is just a mess… and you know what…that’s okay.  Because lets be honest.  That is what art journal pages are for: to experiment and if need be make mistakes.

I am loving playing with the collection of Oddball Art digital stamps, because they really do create so many opportunities to do so many different types of projects from cards to ATCs to art journal pages.

When I saw IMG28 Kawaii Clouds Hearts, I just knew that I wanted to create an art journal page with them.

Thanks for coming in an seeing my mess…and while it is a mess…I feel so good having played with some paint and these gorgeous clouds.
