I finally got a chance to scan the last of my journal pages for my 1st Journal of 2009. It had been my intention to have one journal a month but I made the first journal with LOTS of pages and I couldn’t bear to leave it half done, so it encompasses January & February…Now I’m beginning March.
So, here’s the ones (some better than others but all of them from the heart) that I’ve completed in that first Journal.
I began this one in January, not long after my youngest daughter got married but it took me a while to complete it. Now it’s done and it really epitomizes them and how proud I am of them both and how much I love them, too.
This is one of my favorites but I haven’t found just that right something to put at the bottom.
The way I figure it, no page is ever finished until I feel it is completed and this one will just have to stay this way until I find that just right thing to put at the bottom.
The Warren Zevon lyrics just fit so well and seemed to speak to me. I often find quotes and lyrics that just cry out to me and fit my life…this was one of them.
I’ll show it again when it’s completed…but who knows when that will be? lol
Anyway, here is the Art Journal I’ve made (from all recycled materials, tyvm!) and am about to get started for March (the cover has just began and will progress as I work in it…more red, I’m thinking):
So, there is some of what I’ve been up to these past few days, when I haven’t been working on my workshop lessons and things to get it up and running. I love all the prep work (but I am getting nervous!) but it is very time consuming. My Art Journal is my saving grace, where I can pour out what I’m thinking about or just what’s taking place in my mind and life.
Happy March 1st, everyone!
