Tonight's art journal pages

Tonight, while waiting to pick up my girls from Awana, I journaled. The first page is about a visit to the Shedd Aquarium back in August (I actually did the background a couple days after we visited, but never got around to jotting down the details). This is also my answer to Blissfully_Art_Journaling's theme #1, favorite animal.The next page is just some random thoughts.
And the final page is the side opposite the blackberry page ... just some journaling about how this journal is almost finished and about the backgrounds I've been working on for my next journal. I've got over 30 backgrounds prepped and ready to go! Yay, me!In addition to these, I've done about a dozen more pages, including a handful using the crayon/colored pencil technique like I did on this page. Maybe tomorrow I'll post a pic of these more recent backgrounds. I've got eight more pages to do and all the cardstock I bought will be ready for journaling ... just need to decide whether to go have it bound first, or wait until the pages are totally finished.


  1. You regularly inspire me to go get some backgrounds done and get my mojo flowing. So I thought I would de-lurk and say how much I love your pages.

  2. Thanks for stopping by every so often - I appreciate your positive feedback. I also enjoy checking in with you here - love your journal pages. Are you participating in "Art Journal Fridays?" Have you done any of the prompts yet? I keep wanting too, but haven't yet had the time!

  3. txsbyhThe backgrounds are the hardest aspect for me! How do you prepare them in advance?

  4. great pages! and you have completed so many, thats awesome! you make me want to start an art journal again!

  5. I'm sorting through pages for the 'zine, but I just HAD to comment when I saw your girls go to Awana. It's a blast from the past -- I did, too! Even went to summer camp. I loved it so....

    Okay! Expect an email from me soon!
