First Pages

OK here are the first pages of my art journal. Don't judge too harshly...teeheehee. I have no idea what I am doing but am trying to just go for it anyway. :) The cover is one of Claudine Helmuth's Sticky-back Canvas. I didn't want to pull it apart so I decided to stitch the front. Unfortunately my sewing machine was not working properly (problem with the foot-feeds). So it is a bit messy but it is what it is. I also tried the new rolled flower technique that I have seen out there quite a bit. I tried it with ribbon, bias tape and also torn fabric. I like how they turned out. I may tweak things as I go but so far it has been fun.

The next two pages are what I have so far. Don't know if I will go back to add things or not. But for now they work.
And just to add a little spice to the post I added a photo of the apples off of our tree. This is just the beginning of the season and we have a ton more on the tree. They are so sweet and delicious and are great for apple crisp also. Have a great day everyone!
