I'm not sure that is the official term (Art Journaling Phobia) but that is what I am calling it!! :) Let me start from the beginning.... when we first decided to open the Frosted Designs Store, I knew that I wanted to provide all of you with a Mixed Media Paper Kit. I didn't want a kit that had random mixed media items added to it that I wouldn't have a clue how to use. I wanted a kit that combined my love of paper crafting with the new Mixed Media trends. I admire all of the mixed media items that everyone is using on their cards and layouts and art journals but I didn't have a clue how to add them to my projects. So, the goal of the Mixed Media Paper kits is to not only inspire, but to educate as well!
Now, that leads me to the project I am sharing with you today. I have been following along with Sandee when she does her Sunday with Sandee Series. (If you have missed these, you are missing out! Click HERE to get caught up!) I casually mentioned to her how terrified I was of Art Journaling. I mean, I LOVE to look at art journaling but there is NO WAY I could ever do that! Sandee has sweetly nudged me to give it a try and after her tutorial on wax paper last Sunday, I knew I was going to have to try it! (After all, she does make it look so easy!) So, the journey for me begins!
When I told Sandee that I actually opened the journal for the first time (yes, I was that scared to start!) she asked me if it bit me. (Gotta love a girl with a sense of humor!) And good news, I had my journal open and was unharmed! I thought to myself... I can do this! And I did!!! Slowly I started to build my page and here is what I created....
Now that I have shared my page with you, we would love it if you would share your pages with us! We have had a few of you share them on our FB page and we are loving it! Keep them coming! Click HERE to find our FB page.
I used items from the October Mixed Media Paper Kit. I also used the Gesso from the Mixed Media Starter kit. (If you are just getting started with Mixed Media, this is the kit for you!)
We still have a few of the October Mixed Media Paper kits in the store. And, in TWO days we will be releasing the November Mixed Media Paper Kit. And a reminder.... if you purchase a 3 month or 6 month subscription to the Mixed Media Paper Kit, we will send you a free Ranger Dylusions Creative Journal (which has a $24.99 retail price). You can start your subscription with the October Mixed Media Paper Kit or the November Mixed Media Paper Kit. Just keep in mind that this offer expires on Nov. 30th.
