Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My Art Journal.

Well like I am sure you have all done already I have finally started my art journal.
I am not usually very keen on mixed media and I have discovered it is only because I was not so sure how to go about it. I took the plunge did some research and I am happy, and very proud, to share it with you.


 
I did some gel embossing and then added micro beads. Stunning effect

 
And here I made a tag. The same technique with the gel embossing BUT no micro beads.
 
I hope you like it.
