This is the first page of my new ART JOURNAL that I will be keeping inspired by prompts from The Awe-Manac by Jill Badonsky (who is a personal friend and mentor of mine) ...Today, as I read the January 1st prompts from the book I was very much aware of my word for the year which is ENJOY! (I am facing toward the positive in any given situation...and willing to ENJOY my life more because of it)...I am looking forward to a year of BELIEVING in myself more...and taking care to let myself BLOOM everywhere possible....I am holding on to the one most important thing that worked for me....LISTENING TO MY HEART!
I have done this new art journal on 140 wt watercolor paper...with sharpies...acrylic and watercolor...how they will change over this year will be interesting to watch as each prompt for the day is used....the pages are 9 inches wide by 6 inches ( I bought a 9 by 12 tablet and cut each page in half....and I will use both sides ...hopefully binding them at the end of the year!)
You don't have to worry about where you start...what day you start on...the thing is just to start!
You have 364 more days to play!! Share your pages by putting a link to your blog on the comment section here...I would love to see how you are playing!!
Artfully Yours,
PS: most of you who know me...realize that I do my affirmation in the morning...so I have decided that I will be doing this Art Journal in the evening....Look for me then ...right here!!
AND THANKS JILL!...I needed this!
