Well I've been wanting to start my own journal for a while now after being inspired by lots of my blog friends. So last week I went hunting for a journal. Now I'm not sure what sort of book people use but when I went to a few art shops in town they didn't really seem to have what I was looking for. So I ended up buying a visual diary which I was told wasn't the greatest to paint on but I thought I'd take my chances anyway. What sort of books do other people use?
Anyway, I'm not sure if there are any 'rules' to keeping journals but I decided to start mine off with a piece that was inspired by the wild weather we've been having over here. A few nights ago myself and my husband and two boys were lying awake for hours while the power went on and off and we could hear the wind howling outside. Quite scary for the kids as we felt that the roof would blow off.
So this is my first attempt in my journal. Painted in acrylic paint I used that crackle paint effect as I was practising for my canvas in my previous post. I also used some coloured pencil and black pen.
