Mermaid Journal Page

And it only took a month to finish, haha!  This is the mermaid I showed on my blog on Oct 3rd, the plan was to add something to the left side. The problem is that I'm not too good at this journaling stuff, unless I follow someone's instructions...in the end, I added a bit of blue and white paint, and wrote some words down that I thought went with the drawing.  Not particularly creative,  but hopefully if I keep playing around in my art journal, I will get the hang of it, and be able to produce lovely, interesting  pages like a lot of you do.
This is from my portrait journal, the one I use to practice drawing different faces.

My decorating is almost done, one tree is up, the next will go up on the weekend. If I can get a good photo of my funky crazy tree I will post it. It's quite unusual, lol!
Once the decorating is finished, I can sit back and concentrate on holiday art.
Hopefully some Christmas fairies or angels...

thanks for reading!

She is just gorgeous, I love the way you did the page!! I have no idea how to do art journaling, but I think you are doing wonderfully! :) ~Lauren

She is stunning!!

I don't journal at all, I tried once or twice but I just don't feel an urge to do it, I guess it doesn't suit everyone? ;)

She is so gorgeous. And hey...it is your journal. It doesn't have to look like everyone else's. It is for your enjoyment and to stretch your creative muscles. You did well.

Lovely one. I really like it.

I decorated a table for Thanksgiving and used my
ACEOS for decorating for Fall. But...I have not started for Christmas yet.

You should send your journal to artful journaling when you're done! You must post your 'crAzy' tree for us to see too:) Have a great week!

I'm with you on the journaling trouble part. I never know what to write. This woman is absolutely stunning! I think the blue and white was an excellent addition too as it really makes the portrait pop.
