Wanderlust Inspiration

I've started one of my year long courses, and I can see it's going to be fun and challenging!

You can check it out here, there are a LOT of great artists and crafters participating in this endeavor!

I finally decided to use my 8x8 Dylusions art journal for this adventure.  There is a focus on two page spreads with smaller journals, but, hey, I feel I can also do a one pager when the mood strikes. I also had a collection of unused art journals in different sizes in my stash, so its good to use what I already have. I want this to be a reflection of my journey through the course.

So, I'll share in pictures several of the steps I went through to create my first page.

Here is my finished page inspired by Wanderlust 2016. I also pulled inspiration from my friend Ashli Oliver, who does lovely work in soft colors. I am definitely having some creative fun!
