Art Journal Everyday Update...

For those of you that are playing along with the Art Journal Every Day group - how's it going?  I have to admit, I haven't been art journaling every single day; but I do have some new journal progress to share!

First - I've started a daily writing journal.  I got this fun one at Barnes and Noble. 
 I'm using it to do free-writing, plus notes, to-do's etc.  I'm loving it!  I am doing a little collage to introduce each month at the beginning...


 Here's April's...
 Nothing super fancy, just a few images to set the tone for the month.  The article is from "O" magazine, and the little bird is cut from a Papaya Arts catalog.

Here's the one for May...



 Here's another collage I did, just for fun.  This one is in my blue kitten journal...


I made another handmade envelope to keep my receipts and notes and things for May.  This time I used leftover paper that was used to catch paint spills...


and here's a little peek at one that's in progress...

Thanks so much for your kind comments in my last post about my Project Life.  I really appreciate them so much!  If you left a question, I  tried to answer it in the comments section, so please be sure to check there.  I don't want you to think I am ignoring you.  :0)

That's all for today.  I hope you are having a super-groovy week my friends!  I will see you again soon!

First of all I love the journal itself...so fun! The pages are so bright and filled with energy. I love all of the images you have chosen. The smiling pitbull reminded me of my rescue pup from college and the pink panther...swoon! The paint drip papers are an especially nice touch to your beautiful pages :)
