Journal Pages

I'm finishing the school semester, five days and counting! The bathroom remodel is almost finished, if I can just get the contractors back here for final details...like a mirror above the sink...! :-)
Lately, I've been working on creating journal entries for the "Journey of Journals Swap" at Coach Creative Space There are seven participants in a circuit who create spreads in each others' journals, and it's so exciting to think of your book coming home with all that creative lusciousness in it after traveling to places like England and South Africa. I can hardly wait to see my journal again.
Today, I was checking out Milliande's wonderful journaling videos and decided to play with mixed media just for myself. I love her experimental approach to art, and can always use a stress-free undertaking these days!

Hope your December holds lots of
Love & Laughter,
DJ

What a great project for you. I've seen them done before with Mariman concentina sketchbooks and they turn out fantastic with the varied styles all rolling into one great book to treasure.

BTW - I agree - don't forget to eat.

Oh I love your journal pages here! I need to start art journaling again myself.

The Journey of Journals Swap sounds soooooooo awesome. I bet you are excited to get your journal back to see where it has been and who across the country has journaled in it. I hope you will share more about it with us once you get your journal back D.J.

Hugs,
Lee Ann

Oh, knowing you just can't WAIT for the break.
Post photos of the re-do,,,love seeing that.
Love your sketchbook page. I was in one of those groups and had SO much fun with it! I treasure it!

Shopgirl said...

just the thought of a journal that would travel to so many places is great, and all the creativity coming back home to you...so sweet.
I know how hard it can be doing any room in the house, but a bathroom would be very hard. I hope you will share pictures. I am painting my bathroom this week. Just a little makeup for the holidays...Merry Christmas, Hugs Mary
