Art Journal started! Oh yeah!

I've been itching to start this journal for a while.  Especially after Dyan Reaveley visited the Scrapbooking Studio.  I soo wanted to take her classes, but alas...no can do.  I did buy as much as I could and brought it with me to Wisconsin.  Been here a week and no journalling was going on...what the???  Did lots of art journal pinning though.

Well...woke up at 3 am last night and couldn't fall asleep.  To add to the problem I had this journal page going through my head.  I had started the background before bed (not happy with this one...turned out muddy.  I'll have to look at colors I chose, order of application, amount of ink, etc...).  I'm totally happy with the final outcome!

I totally had a blast stamping, painting, cutting, doodling, etc!!!  I soo not done.  I already have another page floating in the grey matter.  I have lots of stuff to journal about right now!  LOL!!

Anyway...here it is!  And the start of a tag.  Not sure what else is going to go on that one yet.  Notice I doodled U R LOVED in between the heart border stamp.  Originally I was going to have the hearts surround the dress...but it wasn't working for me.  Then I thought to create butterflies out of the smaller hearts.  So I swirled them around and off to the other page.  I wish I could sew in the book!  Not quite sure how I'm going to pull that off yet!  

Thanks for looking!
