I'm finishing up my art journal of affirmations, take a peek! The whole journal opened up -click on any photo for a larger view . . .
For the last page I journaled about the experience and thanked my friend Jo Urbani. She gave me a list of positive affirmations back in 2012 that helped me get started with this, wheeee!
On the left side I wrote out most of the affirmations I used throughout the book . . . then added watercolor crayons with a wash a water over them.
Here's what my journal looks like from the side
After I completed all the pages I looked at the cover.
It's a mess!
I decided to cover it with scrapbooking paper and washi tape, then added rubber stamping too. The words, The Sweet Life were already printed on the paper.
The back - there you see the black elastic that wraps around the journal to keep it closed.
I used my Xyron adhesive machine to attach the paper to the cover and added my title with a white gel pen.
more of the inside pages . . .
You can see all of the inside pages over on my flickr account. - There are 2 sets:
Art journal with affirmations 2012 - 1st set
Affirmations Journal 2013-14: 2nd set
I've got my next blank art journal already picked out. It's a lot different. It's larger with very sturdy paper. I look forward to working in it! In the meantime, I have signed up for an online workshop with Roben Marie Smith, Snap & Share. I have started gathering supplies and hope to try something from the class out soon! What have you been working on?? Let me know! I don't know about you, but I am finding it more of a challenge to get everything I want to do, done lately. I'm dancing a lot in Nia class or Conscious Movement and I started attending a class (beginners) with a local dance company, Fuzion. I do take time for my blipfoto journal everyday . . . I feel like I should be getting more done, but maybe not!!!
