Hi there and welcome to my blog and my first blog post! A little info about me, I am 30 years old, I live in Arizona and I am married to an amazing woman and we have four dogs. Besides art journaling I love to scrapbook, card making, reading, writing, mixed media and slowly but surely learning to sew. Here are some of my newest journal pages as well as my first handmade book!

The page above reads just let go, sometimes the fear of the unknown or the fear of failure stop me from being who I really want to be. It keeps me from getting myself out there from showing who I am and what I do. But its time to let go of the negative thoughts, the you can't do it's and the your not good enoughs. Time to let go time to be free. What I used Gesso, watercolors, pastels and sharpie.

This page reads happiness is, being married to my amazing wife, my four dogs, paint gesso and markers, books, star gazer lilies, new shows, feeling pretty, my adorable niece, fruity margaritas, smoothies, pretty paper, music, glitter, the beach, doodles, accepting yourself. What I used gesso, watercolors, water color crayons, paper, sharpie, gems, iridescent medium, glitter glue my i rock .

My first ever hand made journal! I love it! Made from paper, cardboard, watercolors, buttons, pearls and a  pretty sticker. I had to sew the pages together which was crazy complicated!

This journal page reads This is scary, When I was twelve I had a brain tumor caused me to have headaches, everyday. Well I am having headaches again, bad ones on the left side of my head the same place that my tumor was. I went to the doctor and it's a waiting game now...But what if? What if I lose everything? What if this is a brain tumor??? Oh what if? The supplies used were spray ink , watercolors, stamps, markers, sharpie, pastels and iridescent medium. Want to learn how I make my backgrounds?
