I've seen art journals around blog land and was intrigued. When The Greeting Farm announced their Heart Journaling project, I thought it would be fun to participate. I got a small sketch book at Michael's and got started. Here's the cover:I used Modge Podge to glue old photos from a trip to Japan and some scrap papers to the front. I added some small embellishments that were on my craft table. I added a sentiment "chase your dreams" and LOTS of glitter.
I added a bookmark to the journal using the leftover baker's twine I colored for my MIC project. I added beads and a heart charm to the bottom.
The first week of the Heart Journal project is Spread Your Wings:
I used the page to write down my thoughts on why I wanted to do an art journal. I used red and purple acyrlic paint and distress inks to create the background. Then I attached papers and elements to decorate. I used Sonny Honeycloud Butterflies from Pollycraft. Of course, I added lots of glitter : )
I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
1. Craft Us Crazy #13 - anything goes
2. Allsorts #113 - free and easy
