From my Art Journal

Hi there, this is a little painting that I made, see I started keeping an art journal, I have many pocket size sketch books I filled out over time, now I decided to keep a journal no bigger than 6X8 so it fits in my purse, along with some pens for coloring in.  At home I use distress minis from Tim Holtz to do a back ground on several pages at once, this way I can just sketch/draw onto the pages whenever I feel inspired.

I love to paint, pretty much on anything and with everything I have on hand.  I used distress minis, plaids fabric paints and markers, sharpies, paint pens, and Viva Decor's paper soft paints.  My goal is to hopefully be inspired to paint/draw/sketch at least once a day, every day.
