Art Journal Swap!

Because mixed media was so new to me after I found the youtube videos of inspiration I roamed for a group of some sort. Especially, because I kept hearing on the videos of how people were connected and sending things to each other and it looked like so much fun! I found a mixed media group on facebook through Limor1278 (that's her youtube name, you should watch some of her videos. She's awesome)

In this group was a lady name Jeannie Dukic, and she decided to host a art journal swap! (Thanks Jeannie! I had so much fun doing this.) The idea was to make or buy an art journal, decorate/alter the cover and then do at least one art entry inside the journal. We could also send some goodies as well.

My swap partner was a lovely lady named Linda. (scrapchica.blogspot) and I had so much fun creating her journal. Looking back on it now, I should have done a video once I was done, and described how I did things...oh well. Live and learn, next time. But here are some pictures of what my creative and talented partner made for me.

This is a video of the one she made for me.
And you can see the one I made for her on her youtube channel. Her name is scrapchica.                                                  

Alright, now that you have seen mine, you can go blog hop the other participants to see if they have put theirs up!
