O is for One...

I've got one more completed page for the "Year In The Life of an Art Journal" project! Yeayyyy!

There are soooo many ways you could go with a prompt like "one." The first thing I thought of was the U2 song "One". Such a beautiful, emotional song. I LOVE the video for it too. It doesn't really apply to my life tho, so that wouldn't do. I had a number of different ideas, but in the end, ended up with this...I used the Heidi Swapp alphabet masks, an image of woman, cut from a magazine and used for a mask (a trick I learned from Dina Wakely), blue & slate glimmer mist, purple spray ink, masking tape, "authentic" stamp by Stampin Up, 7 gypsies gaffer tape, oil crayon and sharpies. I managed to work in the misting and masking for The Next Step challenge.

The journaling says "When I realized that I was enough all by myself, without anyone's approval or permission, that's when the world opened up. "

My book is starting to get thick and bulky and I LOVE that!

Next on my project list is the BASB challenge to use memorabilia in a layout. This will be super fun! I have a big box full of memorabilia. The tough part will be deciding which memorabilia to scrap!

I hope your week is going well and wish you a fabulous Thursday! Thanks so much for stopping by!
