I've been holding on to this post for a while now, and have been dying from excitement about it. A few months ago I applied to be on the creative team for Dawn Nicole Designs™. It was my first time reaching out to be a part of someone else's blog, and luckily for me Dawn loved what I was making! I'm really excited to be on the creative team there with some very talented ladies. Today is my first official post there! And of course it was only suiting for it it to be about art journaling...
There is a lot more interest in art journaling lately, but I find a lot of people don't know how to go about getting started. My usual response is to just get started and be prepared for some ugly pages to happen. It's natural, it's totally normal and we all have a lot of them. However, I do know that the will to continue happens after finding some success. That success can be creating an art journal page you actually love.
Over on the Dawn Nicole Designs™ blog today, you can find a full step-by-step tutorial on how to create this butterfly and tissue paper page. It's crazy easy and will only take about an hour from start to finish (mostly to account for drying time!) It's easy enough for kids to follow too, and will leave you feeling like you made something nice (which can be a win lots of days!)
You can check out the full tutorial over on Dawn Nicole Designs™! I would love to see any pages you create using the tutorial, so be sure to tag me on Instagram. Are you an art journaler? Have I converted you yet? What are you waiting for! If you have any questions or just want to chat, don't hesitate to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
