I agree that you can do both.  Just depends on you mood and supplies, I guess.  I don't have any scraps as I have not done this before, nor do I get much junk mail (have PO box) and do not purchase magazines.  I do have some papers I bought if they are still good and I can find them from moving and having to move again. I also have several diferent mediums, like acrylic, watercolor, pencils (regular and oil)) and some pastels.

I like the way she puts pages together to add on then fold in to make bigger, as do some others.  Things I probably would never have thought of on my own.

I also like to watch the videos on YouTube in normal time as the ones that are speeded up tend to give me a headache.  Don't know if it is from chemo or what.  Things like that didn't used to bother me, but it even changed my eye prescription.......Maggie

This is a great link with a lot of great resources and the like. Art journaling almost always uses mixed media and I didn't see this link already.

Thanks so much for this link.  Looks like a good one..........Maggie
