PA - Inspired by France Papillon

I've been toying wth the idea of starting an art journal for a while - after seeing France Papillon's page ealier this week on the Paperartsy blog it gave me that extra push to have a go! All her projects this weeks have been amazing.

I didn't want to go straight into my book (just in case it was complete disaster) so have created this page to stick in later - quite pleased for a first attempt. I've had this IndigoBlu stamp for a few weeks and haven't had a chance to use it yet. Stamping onto mulberry paper didn't quite work out but I suppose it's all about trial and error to see what works. 

Might just have caught the bug !


  1. It;s fab! Love all the greens. I remember that first page - very scary - now you need to work in the journal....

  2. It looks great to me and art journals are all about experiment. I'm sure this journal will soon be full of lovely pages. Julie Ann Lee

  3. this looks great Sarah, and a great excuse to try different techniques and materials! (as if crafters need an excuse!?) Kim x

  4. Great page, love the fun stamp.

  5. this looks like you had great fun!! yeah, happy to have contaminated you with the art journaling virus ;)

    thanks for playing along!

  6. Fantastic first journal page, I have only been doing a journal for a couple of months but it is so addictive you will love doing it. :-) Kezzy xxx

  7. Your creation is really good - keeping an art journal is so much fun and there are so many different styles out there in blogland!
