How To Make Art Journal Pages With Your Fingers VIDEO

Its only 11:30am and already I am covered in paint.  What an amazing way to start the day! (and a tricky issue when baby boy wakes up and wants a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for breakfast.  "Sure honey, would you like that with or without acrylic paint?"  I am finally starting to break out the Art Journal making supplies, and trying to psych myself up for all this craft show prep that needs to happen in 6 weeks time.  I've been wanting to make a few smaller journals that features hand painted pages ready to inspire their new owner, so I decided to start there today.
I have also been hearing from a lot of you that art journaling is something that you've always wanted to do, but just havn't jumped in that ocean of creativity yet.  So I thought I'd show you how I made 12 double sided creatively prepped pages in just 20 minutes.  I only used a few materials, pastels, pencil, white paint, and ink mostly with tools of roller stamps, and my finger (no brush needed!).
It was incredibly fun and fast, and I hope it encourages you that any one can do this with very little tools and very little art technique. 

Here's the video of me creating the pages! Enjoy the colorful messy fun!

Just wait, and I'll reveal the final completed art journal tomorrow!
