Art Journal Pages for the Week

This week I was able to art journal every day except Thursday because I had a really bad migraine. I don’t count weekends because I am usally too busy to work on art journaling. I also journaled a lot more than before. I usually don’t write much because I like being private.  I also hate my handwriting since due to carpal tunnel my hands shake quite a bit when I do a lot of writing, drawing, crafting etc.

While searching for technique videos on youtube I came across Lesile Herger’s Sharpie Ghost Technique.  I like how I can journal about anything especially something I may not wish to share but still be able to let people see the page.  One of my pages was created with this technique.  I will definitely be using this technique again in the future.

I also created a page that I really dislike and really didn’t want to post.  I wasn’t feeling well when I created it on Monday.  It started out fine until I created the face.  I probably should have tried to peel it off and maybe gotten something neat from it but instead I chose to finish the face off and let it be.

Here are my pages for this week.  You can click on them to get a larger image.
