Art Journal, my new obsession

I've fallen down the rabbit hole of mixed media and art journaling. I mentioned this new obsession several weeks back, and it's only gotten worse. Other than taking some pictures and listing some items, I haven't really touched my beads. The table beside my desk currently looks like this

I've carved stamps for Pete's sake!

Here are some of the results of my messy, painty, inky play (if you follow me elsewhere, you've probably seen these.)
I don't see an end in site to this new obsession, but that's okay. I just need to get back into my beads too. I'm hoping for a more bead-centric day tomorrow. . .we'll see how that goes.

  3. So far I have managed to avoid the other arty hobbies. I have so many beads that the last thing I need to do is try to find time to do anything else.

  6. Oh, this is dangerous - you don't need any special supplies at the beginning :) This is like writing a diary or even letters, I am sure the effect is very soothing :)
