Can you believe this journal was made out of paper bags?!
With many layers of paints and inks on the paper bag pages, they became soft and plastic-y. I absolutely love the texture and feel of these pages.

Tapes and a magazine image made such a strong impression over the gesso that I left the page as is.
Photographs work well on art journal pages. In this case the background colors and my bike photo just worked very well together. Do you use photos when art journaling?!

These adage tickets I've used throughout are from Tim Holtz idea-ology. The dragonfly metal sticker is from momenta and I colored it with a layer of gesso and spray inks by Dylusions.
Do you art journal? What is your favorite kind of journal to use, store bought or homemade? I hope you enjoyed this peek inside my trash to treasure journal!
