More Than Words October Main Challenge - Write and Magazines

 Hello there.. How are you? As well as can be I hope...

I am just popping up my creating for the Main Challenge over at MORE THAN WORDS which is now to create  Art Journal Pages.. Now I am a beginner at Art Journaling.. I have done a class and I watch a lot of YouTubes with very talented artists who take the time to make the videos and share with us.. Among my favourites are France Papilion and Maremi Small Art and others that pop up on YouTube.

and the challenge is..

To be inspired by the word WRITE and use Magazines. Well I dont buy magazines usually so I got a mag from Coles and used that!!

I have taken some step photos as I created.

I tore out some pages with the colors I thought I might use.. and then I ripped up some pieces of papers and glued them on my pages. I have used a smallish sized book with each page measuring 14cm by 20cm.

I then used two stencils and did some random stencilling.

I then used a glimmer mist for color.

I then added some stamping and some stickers

I then added some cut out circles and hearts from the magazine papers. I went around the edges with a black pen and then added some black with a pastel crayon and smudged the edges to make them softer.

For this journal I am creating pages with meaning or inspiration, so I found a Bible verse with the word WRITE in it and used that as well as using my hand writing for my pages.

and my pages..

I still feel like such a beginner but I have found Art Journaling is another great way to sit and forget the troubles for a while and create something with meaning as well as just playing with products.. I dont have anything special, just old mists and water colors and stamps and stencils..There are many wonderful artists who inspire me.. Thank you MORE THAN WORDS for this fabulous challenge.. I did enjoy creating for it.. I hope to join in with more of these challenges.. 

Thanks for coming by and visiting my little blog today.. I do appreciate each one coming by.. 

Until next time.. take care..


  1. Lizzy, you have created an absolutely beautiful art journal spread! I love the way you used magazine pages for your background!! You came up with the most gorgeous page for a "beginner!!"
