Art Journalling

I am a doodler by nature.  I doodle on everything…always have.  I remember in class doodling because it calms my mind and helps me focus.  I have been noticing more doodling and journals on Pinterest lately.  I started a board here

I have also taken a liking to art journalling.  This seems like a natural progression for a scrapbooker and doodler.  I purchased my first book to use and made my first attempt.  I read somewhere that you need to get started.  There is no right or wrong way to journalling…that is what makes the journal personal.

I thought I would share my first page.
