Yay! I have a blog

Happy Australia Day everyone! I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and great weather we are having here in the West. Today has been fun and exciting for me, a little scary too! as I am now official, yes officially a blogging member of the Scraptivate crew.

Natalie thank you so much for all the help you have given me to set up my blog! You rock girl!
I am so excited that I can now share my art with you and all the great challenges we receive in our design team packs. keep watching this space. 

I thought I would share with you the cover of my art journal that I am making in Natalie's art journaling class. we will be getting together every second Saturday afternoon to work on these journal pages. Go to the Scraptivate website for class times. I am loving what we are making here and we will bind these books up once we have made pages. Mmmmm better hurray up an make some more!

I chose to paint an image on the front of my journal using Golden paints and watercolour crayons. The background is paper collage and painted with gesso and even though you can't see it in the photo, allot of Dazzle wax. You can get all these products at Scraptivate.
