Well I did say that I would be posting and including some other stuff that keeps me busy...so HERE IT IS....yesterdays page from my art journal. Now if someone would have mentioned to me five months ago, the term "art journaling", I would have looked at them rather blankly, (Emily knows that look), and thought "huh". Well it was not until i discovered that it is the next best thing, or maybe on a par to scrapbooking. There are so many different approaches to doing and completing a page....sometimes I don't even know what style is really mine, and I incorporate alot of what I have seen and learnt all on one page. I have also stopped worrying so much about what the finished page will look like, and am allowing myself to enjoy the process more....I mean after all, it's my journal, housing my words, thoughts, emotions, lists etc...on the decorated page. Now if this all seems appealing, I urge you to check out Teesha Moore's Blog...that is what truly inspires me.....as well as Kelly Kilmer.
Remember, there is NO right OR wrong in this process...."JUST DO IT."
Also, I am really excited about starting Ali's "Week in The Life"...in fact, I can't wait....I rushed around today at work excitedly gathering the papers that I thought I would be using. The only problem is that, I declare myself, the ultimate Ali Edwards copycat, and NOT being able to have the EXACT same papers she showed, did throw me into a little panicked frenzy....however, with a little help from my friends Agnes and Diane, we were able to put together a group of seven papers which I love. "Week in the Life" really is a wonderful way to document our everyday lives....and I urge and encourage everyone to do it....you will be glad you did.
