Art Journaling - My 1st page!

I've been wanting to have a go at art journaling since last summer. What with family commitments & no classes nearby I haven't had chance to play until recently.

My 1st page was inspired by a fabulous project by Kate from The Kathryn Wheel.

1st art journal page

I know it's probably at bit OTT (with the white pen & the spider but it's difficult to stop!) & I got carried away with the mushroom wash which has the children & hubby!! in fits of giggles everytime I mention it.... rofl!

I have 2 more fabulous ladies to Thank. :)

I needed to keep busy last weekend as many will be aware & keep my mind occupied. So, last Friday afternoon I rang the Craft Den & told Lynne what colour of paint Dabbers I was looking for & NEEDED right, right now!! & hey presto Royal Mail delivered them Saturday morning..... does a little dance with strange looks from the children. :-D

Thank You Lynne for such quick service.XXX

I also have a special Thank You to Wipso from Sisters Crafty Creations for inspiration found! XXX

Oooh I'd better let you know the gorgeous little girl is from Lisa's Altered Art.

Thank you for looking.xx I'd love to know what you think if you have the time. Love Gez.xx


  1. Gez this is brilliant your first page no one would know if you hadn't said. You've really got a feel for art journaling, it's great.
    Hugs Pat xx

  2. That's super Gez - you're very talented.

  3. Wowser! This is great Gez! It's quirky AND it tells a story (I'm into storytelling!)
    I'm afraid I have to warn you - there's no going back now - you'll find this art journaling addictive!
    BUT SO REWARDING! Have fun!

  4. Well it looks great, I am seeing alot of this journaling art not sure what it is but the pages I have seen are wonderful

    Love Dawn xx

  5. I don't know what a "mushroom wash" is either Gez lol

    Your journalling is wonderful and must strike a cord with most modern women. (It does with me!) Love how you have written your different roles on the bunting at the top of the page.

    I don't think the white pen and spider are OTT - it is your journal and you stop when you want too. x

    More of the same please. x x


  6. This is a fabulous journal page, looks as though you are an expert at it. I love the spider, and the background colours are lovely. Well done, and I agree with other comments, now you've started, there's no stopping. Have a good day. Hugs xx

  7. Oooh Gez, I love this. What a fab first page. It is fabulous. Love the washed out words in the background too!

  8. Hi Gez. I just love it. Really not sure how I've inspired you but love the results :-)
