The other day, on an internet forum, someone took it upon themselves to tell me that what I do isn't "REAL art journalling", as I often use my own photos and the journalling on the page is usually just documenting the photo - hence I am "just a scrapbooker".
I think I was supposed to be upset by that, but to be perfectly honest, I'm not in the slightest bit fussed what you want to call it, I'm just having fun doing what I do :) I certainly don't have any personal need to call what I make "art". I've always considered myself more of a crafter than an artist anyway, although I often use artists' materials in my craft.
But anyway, here's another page in my journal / little scrapbook / book of fun :)
This page commemorates the ticking off of another one of our Project Zero goals - to have a smooch on or in front of the Eiffel Tower.
We're not the world's most romantic couple, but who could resist the opportunity for a little 'moment' in the cité d'amour? :)
Lots of sparkle on this one from copious applications of glimmer mist. Shimmer shimmer.
And it's VERY purple. It wasn't supposed to be, but it just turned out that way :)
My little Moleskine is getting really colourful and pretty at the edges now - and it's seriously fattening up - it will be HUGE by the time it's all full!
