I have actually managed to (almost) consistently work on my art journal since the start of the year. Trying some fun things with paint and pens in it. I've got a list of things I'm looking forward to trying. I even managed to create a decent face.

I've also been working on a project with roses painted on textured patterned paper. The roses turned out well and I can't wait to start assembling the rest of the piece. I actually liked the roses so well on the one piece of paper that I had to create something similar for another project, though I don't know what that project will be. I have a small notebook that is filling up with ideas for projects I want to work on, someday.

I finally have some cute journaling spots for a set of layouts I would like to finish. Painted roses on circles, very cute. I also made some journaling spots with winter green flowers and snowmen faces. These will come in handy for holiday and snow layouts I'll work on this spring. I might make some fancier ones with multiple layers of paper but these are cute and simple.
