{days 5&6} art journal

Despite my initial skepticism, I am really enjoying working on this art journal.  I know it isn't your typical art journal, but tags were a lot less intimidating to me that doing an actual page in a book every day.  And seriously, I'm trying my best to stick to the "10 minutes of fun" that Julie suggested! 

Day 5: Heart's Desire
The snow that is falling today inspired today's tag. 

Day 6: be yourself
Here is a close up of the snowflake. 

I made it with molding paste and a brass stencil and then covered it with micro beads.

Happy Thursday, and thanks for stopping by!
