Art Journal (cover) challenge



It's been a while since we did an AJ challenge on this blog and I think it's about time to do another one, don't you think?
If you are not into Art Journaling (yet), then feel free to make something else (card, tag, ATC, scrapbook page etc.)

We (AJ-ers.. is that a word? .. It is now lol) love using masks on our pages. I'm sure you will all agree. So this mask week is the perfect opportunity.
But instead of making another "page", how about doing something about your AJ *cover*

I personally have several AJ on the go, but my favourite is the one with the outside done as well as the inside. So pretty.

So let's see how you will pull this off...

For this Art Journal challenge, we will ask you to 


You can use anything else you would like... paints, fabric, inks, stamps, collage, BUT you have to use masks too

Challenge is open to all countries
and will close on 
Sunday 24th June

Please, post your AJ cover on your blog and link it 
(Permalink please, not a general link to your blog) to the blue frog below. 

If you don't have a blog, you can email me a picture of your entry (the name of the file should be your name) and I'll post it for you. 

The other option, if you don't have a blog is to post it on your Facebook and link it from there. 
I should think it would work with Google + or Instagram too for those of you who have those accounts. Remember that your picture has got to be public for it to work.

Here's a few samples for your this week
