Last year I was watching a scrapbooking programme on living channel and one of the guests was talkng about doodling on your scrapbook pages. After the show I goggled the guests name and found her blog here and I thought that her art journalling was great and something i would like to try.
Since the new year began I had a go and these are the pages i came up with
My first art journal page, a couple of days later I had another go and came up with this
the quote is Louise L. Hay and the page was inspired by my friend Abbie, my third page
Whilst 'blurfing' the other day I found a facebook page called Just Journal which has prompts and step by step photos to start creating your own art journal, last night i began with the first double page and came up with this
I decided that I would/needed to find something to be thankful everyday, to take some time and smell the roses, to appreciate the small things.
So today being the first day of the year 2012 I am posting my first thing I am thankful for:
Books that read themselves!!! Every night hubby or I read the girls a story before bed, in the middle of this year he started a new job which saw him working four nights a week every alternate week and because putting the girls to bed was usually his job, they really missed having Daddy read them their story at night.
Thanks to the inventor of recorable books the girls don't miss out on a story from Daddy even if hes working!
