30 Day Journal Challenge: Introduction

It's June!  That means it's time to post the first page from my art journal for Run With Scissors' 30 Day Journal Challenge!  Today's prompt was "create an introduction page."

Ta da! Day 1.  It's way busier than I would have liked, but it was so much fun to do.

It was so nice to work with dip pens again.  It turns out the orange ink doesn't have much of a scent on the paper, but it smelled lovely while I was drawing. 

It got a little bit smudged.

This adorable ball of fuff is my bunny, Lucy. I'm really happy with how she turned out.

I was trying to make it feel as if she was underground in a burrow, surrounded by roots (Blooming roots. . .  Sure, that can be a thing.).  I guess it's about the contrast between reality and dreams/what could be.

This was awesome.  I'm completely hooked on art journaling, and I can already tell that it's going to be my favourite part of the day.

It's never too late to join in, as far as I see it.  If you're interested, get in on it!  If you want to see other people's entries, there's a flickr group for the challenge.

Happy journaling!
