Finished Art Journal pages

Took me a few days to get them finished but I did it :) And I am very happy with the result. I'm trying to work more out of my comfort zone and try new things. Can't say techniques cause well I am just sitting there and playing with paint and images and stamps.
 See those little birdies at the top right :) Those are part of another set of pages I have started working on. Seems I do more work in my art journal lately than anything else. I still have a card to make for next weeks Stamp Club meeting :) My cousin says I always wait till the last minute but I always come up with something creative. We will see lol
 a close up of the heart I made with the molding paste. I like that I tried something and it came out right :)
Well I am off to enjoy some much needed peace and quiet, only the oldest and I are home and I am thinking of getting us a movie to watch.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend :)
***edited to add new pages***
 Figured my art journal needed a front page :) The polka-dot paper is a piece of an envelope that the oldest got in the mail today.
 2 pages I did today. I have so many odds and ends of stickers, die cuts and such from scrapbooking that I am going to encorporate them in here when I can.

If you open the door it says Home Sweet Home :)
Ok, it is now after 1 am  and I should be sleeping but just can't seem to get myself into my bed lol

Welcome to another WOYWW hosted by our fearless leader Julia over at Stamping Ground. Be sure to pop on over there to be nosey haha and check out everyone elses desks this week. Make sure you have something to eat or drink cause you will be sitting at your computer for a while :) There is actually stuff on my desk this week. Mind you, it didn't get there till yesterday afternoon because well my mojo had left the building and did not see fit to return till yesterday :) The journal page you see is inspired by Miss Donna Downey Simply Me. The link brings you to last weeks Inspiration Wednesday's post. The album I am working in was also inspired by her but I can't find the original to share. But she was using newspaper as her base and going from there :)
 Up above my desk I have a pegboard filled with alot of my stickers (I really need to start using them), misc. foam stamps and such. On the wire shelf I have cute little baskets and such holding all kinds of who knows what (been a while since I looked around in them).
 This will be the right page that goes with the one on top. I made the little heart with molding paste, paint, gems and SU's Crystal Effects. I will be sure to post a pic when it is done.
 Here is the front cover of the album. It is made with canvas that I sewed and painted and added stuff to. The beautiful stamp and the person is from a big Ali Edwards set that I bought a good while back.
 Here is the back cover, kinda plain lol but when I made them I didn't know what I wanted to put on it. Maybe soon I will get an idea lol
Off to mundane household stuff until later :) I have told my oldest daughter that we are walking up to the Salvation Army later today, I'm hoping to find some things to use for my crafting :)
Hope everyone has a wonderful day and thank you to my new followers for the comments and also all the other comments :)
