Latest Journal Page

I haven't kept up with the Lil Journal Project these past few weeks as well as I did in the beginning, but I'm still finding great prompts at LilBlueBoo when time allows.  Yesterday Ashley suggested we make a layered page featuring a great quote.  Well, I was all over that one since that is one of my favorite things to do!  I wanted to share the page I created because it just makes me so happy to look at it.

(Khalil Gibran obviously wrote these words just for me.)


I can't tell you how much I love keeping an art journal.  I said for years that I was going to do it but just didn't seem to be able to get started.  I think I had it in my head that it had to be some great work of art.  Good grief.


I carry this journal with me all over place these days (even around the house) and I look at my favorite pages over and over again.   Does that make me weird?  In a strange way my journal is a good friend to me.

Okay, yeah, that is weird.  I might need to get out more.

I hope you find something wonderful and creative to do this weekend.  If you'd like to try following a few of Ashley Hackshaw's journal prompts I would highly recommend it!   Just click on this link.


I'm headed to the Edom Festival of the Arts on Sunday...always a good time!  I'll let you know what treasures I find.

  1. Wow, I love this journal! I too always wanted to do a mixed media journal. I will hopefully soon. Yours is inspiring me. I always have some excuse not to do it, I don't have the right paper, the right journal, paint, pens etc. I have them all just not the most perfect ones. Really I just have to jump in. Thanks for the reminder. :) have fun at the Art festival.

    1. Yes, jump in! Your journal is just for you, unless you choose to post pictures for the world to see as I have here :-) It's so much fun just to play...no need for perfection! I think you'll love it.
