I still can't quite believe it!

"In every quarterly issue of Art Journaling, artists open their journals 
and share creative techniques for capturing their emotions"

and I'm going to be one of them!!!

I received an email from the editor last month, and have duly written my article and now just have to wait to sign off the final copy in May :)  

It being the Easter hols I've had lots of time for some art journaling (in between gardening, shopping, tidying, feeding the family....)  I came across some gorgeous pages by Amanda Hawkins on Pinterest and was inspired to use pencil on my pages.

I added pencil lines amongst splashes of ink...

...and between collaged lines of paper...

I've also been playing around with my collection of envelopes (the insides have great patterns) and letraset rub-on letters

and enjoying that relaxing feeling of just playing in my journal.

Anyone else use an ordinary HB pencil on their pages?  Or fancy the challenge of trying?  Link your page in my comments section, I'd love to take a look :)
