Art Journal Pages

In February I took another art journal class from Dina Wakley.  The first 4 pages are from that class.  I love her style.  She teaches wonderful techniques for using stencils, stamps and color.

The following pages are from my personal Art Journal.  I think anyone who wants to create art should do this.  These pages are great ways to try out new techniques or just do what ifs?.  It's always surprising how they end up.

The words on the dress say:
I'm not afraid of
for I have seen
and I love
