Art Journal Everyday - 30 Day Challenge Update and More...

Hey there everyone!  I can't believe it's Thursday again ALREADY!  How does that happen?  I guess time flies when you're having fun, right?

This week I've got some more pages to share from the 30-Day Journal Challenge.  I'm still working in my Amy Tan Daybook for these.  Here we go...


Prompt #7 Happiness is...
This was simple - I just busted out an old Sassafras Lass Journaling Sticker, and added some doodly scallops around the outside.


Prompt #11  How Do You Love?...
This was a fun one where you take a test to determine your love language!  If you want to check out the test - click here.  My minibook has an envelope stitched into it, so I thought it would be the perfect place to tuck the results of my test.  I decorated the front with stickers and markers...

and covered the flap of the envelope with washi tape...



Prompt #12 Favorite Places...
I turned the page sideways for this one, as the spaces in the bamboo patterned paper looked like perfect little spots to put my list...




Prompt #14 This is How I Role...
This is a list of the different roles you play in your life...

I'm still behind, but I'm having fun with it!  I looked through my pages, and couldn't even tell you which prompt was my favorite.  They have all been super fun!  If you are playing along, how are you doing?  Do you have favorite prompts?


I started the Art Journalista workshop on Monday, and so far I'm LOVING it!  Here's a little peek at how my new journal looks so far...

If you want to check the Art Journalista workshop out, click here.

Oh, and I just found out that the Happy Go Lucky Stitchalong Class (at Big Picture Scrapbooking) is 50% off until Friday!  It's an embroidery sampler class, and it looks so CUTE!!! I was tempted to take this class when I first heard about it, but figured I had enough projects going on right now, so I didn't sign up.  Well, at 50% off (that's $10 instead of $20), I couldn't resist!  Wouldn't it be fun to make embroidered journal covers???!!!  Eeekkk!!!  I'm so excited!!!  It starts today!  To check it out click here.

Thanks so much for visiting my friends!  I will see you again soon!

one of my girlfriends suggested I read Gary Chapman's book. I wasn't surprised that I scored 10 in quality time.

I like the concept of the love language that fills your personal love tank, but what an amazing concept to realize the love language that fills another's tank. I finally found out after years of gift giving to a good friend, that the love lang. that filled her tank was acts of service. She couldn't stop thanking me for helping her clean her art studio one Saturday!

I want to totally lift how you covered the envelope flap with washi tape and added the layered hearts. love it!
