My First Journal Page

Hello peeps!

As the title suggests I'm sharing my first ever journal page today.  I've never really been sure about journaling, it looks creative but as I've always created things for a specific purpose or occasion so wasn't sure if this would be for me.  However, I was inspired by Leonie Pujol to give it a go, I've been following her blog and watching her shows and it looked like a lot of fun.  I thought it would be a good way to record which stamps I have too.  There's me applying a purpose to it!   It was also a good opportunity to use one of my Brusho backgrounds (created on ordinary cardstock not watercolour) made at a class at Keep on Crafting, Bury St Edmunds.  It was so much fun that I've already booked a spot on the advanced class.  Another post about that later in the month.

Supplies used:
Goldline Spiralbound Notebook with ivory pages 140gsm
Tim Holtz Crushed Olive Distress Ink
Brusho ( I didn't make a note of colours.)
Graph It marker 3160
Carabelle Studio "Monsieur Cerf et Monsieur Hibou" stamp set
Leonie Pujol Super Swirl, Hey There Dreamer, Bohemian Doodles, Flower Burst, Lots of Texture, Flight to Freedom and Just Be stamp sets.
Coffee dyed copier paper
Ranger Archival Ink - Watering Can, Cornflower Blue, Fern Green and Sepia

As I mentioned, this is my first page and next time I would like to add some texture, stencilling and layers.

Creative Blessings.  x

I wish to enter this into the following challenge(s):
