Freud und Wonne / Joy and Delight

Here are my newest art journal pages, created in a German kids' book of dinosaurs I picked up for about fifty cents at a flea market in town. I actually revisited my own workshop (which, by the way, is on sale here for just five bucks!) and tried a new take on the techniques I teach, like a mandala dreamboard, writing as texture, and secret nooks. Such fun!

It's surprisingly easy to forget just how much fun it is to spend the day collaging and painting; when all your focus is on starting, art journaling takes a different sort of energy. But oh, once you pass that hurdle, it's Freud und Wonne aus jeder Brust: joy and delight from every bosom.

Oh I love your secret pocket you have in there. :) Must keep that in mind next time I make a journal page.
