Art Journal: October Day

Simon Says Stamp
Wednesday Challenge
I finally did it!  After years of wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin' I finally just DID IT!  I started an art journal!  My sister-in-law gave me bunches of paper sample books she got from the print shop where she works.  While looking through them I realized they would make cool and funky art journals.
This week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge was to go dotty!  I flicked and dripped watered down acrylic paint mixed with Pearl Ex onto my work.

The first pages of this sample book are small - these 2 pages together are only 4.25 x 4.75 inches- but the pages get much bigger as the book progresses as you can see in the picture below.  I'm very much looking forward to filling up these pages!  Wish me luck!
