Art Journaling Bunny Power

April, a doodle with coloured pencils on a piece of black paper, that I later taped into the ongoing Art Journal: Can you believe that April is soon over? Wow, it just swooshed past me!

Prepped pages in the Art Journal

Mixing pink with dots of yellow, a page prepped and ready to write on. The collage on the right side was made while putting the book together. It might need some writing too, perhaps a list of some sort… A Traci Bunker inspired page, using stamps bought from her. Painting with green and turquoise at […]
