Good start on the collage. You are good at coming up with text, that is always my weakness.

Subject: [CompositionArtJournals] unfinished page-suggestions?
Date: Saturday, October 11, 2008, 12:40 PM
I posted a pic of a page that is not finished, I think I am going to
add another layer, just wondered if anyone had any suggestions? I am
still new at this and thought it may help to get suggestions from
others who have been art journaling for awhile, maybe input on what
you would do? thanks for any help!!!

yes, you should just start now!! I waited forever to start and I just love it-it's actually all I have been doing, need to get back to some of my other stuff too-I am also my worst critic, but you're right, it is YOUR journal, it's therapeutic so all that matters is that it comes from the heart, so true!!! I am looking forward to seeing your first page and I am going to go start a new one now too:)
have a great evening
