Journal Pages

While up at the cottage I was able to find some quiet time to work on my art journal for Heather's Journaling Without Fear group. I really enjoyed doing the page above for the "Little Things" assignment. Once I got going on the journaling, I felt like I could go on and on with the list. It's good to remind ourselves about those things that are important to us and we are grateful for.
We went on a long nature walk while up north and although the spring wildflowers hadn't bloomed yet (spring is so late in coming this year) there still was a lot to observe. I picked up one of the maple leaves because I was impressed by how thin and transparent it was, like one of those skeleton leaves they sell in the craft stores. As we walked on, I began to notice the other leaves and then it became a game to see how many different leaf specimens I could find. This was an image-quilt assignment and I found all these images in an old issue of "O" Magazine that I had up at the cottage. I used my 2-inch paper punch to cut the squares and looked for images that appealed to me. Surprisingly, I found that most of the images I selected were either red, aqua, or black and had quite a few circle shapes. I like the aqua and red together and now want to create something using this newly discovered combination. I think that's what art journaling is all about....discovering new ideas!

I really like the journal pages especially the quilted one. I just finished a watch pendant. I would like to start working in my journal again. I'll have to check out the group you are in. Sounds fun.
