Two Girls, Two Journals, One Week!

 
 Do you remember this phone shot? I posted it not too long back.  I had a date with myself at Barnes and Noble and got my fav soy latte and grabbed Artful Journaling and I was very happy.  I posted this pic and that Darling Kristin, you know her... Kristin aka Twinkle Twinkle was like oh my goodness, I went on an alone date that same day to Barnes and Noble and got a drink that looked just like yours and grabbed the same magazine.  Well, of course you did!  So we decided to give artful journaling a try.  Given our busy lives, we agreed on a one week art journal that we would do at the same time, and then see come together one week later and share what we came up with. Fun, right?  ...here is my One Week of artful journaling!











and now you must go visit Kristin to see her gorgeous journal.  You know hers is gorgeous right.  She is very gorgeous, and I am very very messy indeed!  Isn't fun to see what two people did with one concept, we both wrote a lot about parenting and love, and what totally different books we made!

oh, and my book was made from a J Crew catalogue.  Pages glued together, gessoed, and then loved!

  13. Genius idea! And I love that you used a J. Crew magazine for this. Your pages are gorgeous and full of depth. I love the writing behind, in and through the art. It lets you know there's a story hidden inside the beauty. Your pages look as though they should be inside the Artful Journaling magazine. Now I'm off to check out Kristin's.

  14. I love your book. It is so full of texture and layers and totally your style. Great job. I'm working on my first art journal this year- Effy Wild's Book of Days Project. My journal looks pretty flat compared to the depth that yours has. That is one reason that I am doing this- make a lot of art and hopefully learn something and improve in the process.

  15. Wow...just one week? Amazing. It would take me a year to do all that.

  44. I've been meaning to write you back about the comment you left on my site. I'm happy I inspired you to draw the girl with her hand over her eye. :) I am blind in my left eye, which is why I painted that painting. Anytime I can inspire someone, it really makes my day. I've been thinking about your comment a lot. I'm sorry it took me so long to tell you.
