Art Journal Tuesday | New edition to my many hobbies

Art journals have most often meant very artsy whimsical journals for me. I am not like that, so I thought ok that is not for me. But I have always been interested in them and been inspired by them. This summer I discovered Andrea  on Instagram and she is such an organized and clean scrapbooker, but you see, she does Art journaling. Yes, I know! She however does it in a way that I totally could do it too. Her spreads are calmer and more graphic in a sense and they inspired me so very much. After browsing her stuff and seeing other Art journalers that she follows etc. I took the plunge and started my own. 

I like to buy old beautiful books at second hand stores mostly because of their covers. I often just use pages for different projects. But this time I decided to use it as my journal. I work right on the pages with different techniques. I have started a pinterest board I call Art journaling Inspiration where I save pages that inspire me and techniques I want to try. It is all very exciting, really!

I thought that I´d leave one day a week where I share a new spread in my journal: Art Journal Tuesday! 

This is my very first pages in the journal. I blended white acrylic with a little bit of water to paint the pages. I worked on the right page first and thought, at first, this was going to be it. But when it was finished, the left page needed something too. So, I added the stamped quote. This is also when I decided that my journal will be a place for the quotes I love too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Memory keeping | Autumn TN 02

If you´d like to see my first few pages in my Autumn mini, just click here

I am still working away in my Autumn travelers notebook. I have enjoyed to add bits and pieces and stories about some of my favorite things about fall. I will go on in November and then start my annual Christmas mini at the start of December. 

Quotes are one of my favorite things to include in my memory keeping projects, so it is no suprise that I have quite a few in here. 

I will use most of the remaining pages for my 30 day gratitude project that I do every year with the grand finale of Thankgiving at the end of the month. 
I have a question, if you are one who makes traveler notebooks, how do you store them when they are done?

Memory keeping | December mini 2016 - 6 past favorites

Three years ago, when my fiancĂ© and me celebrated our first December together, I started a December minibook. It´s a 6x8 binder from Simple Stories with pocket pages. I decided that I´ll have three years worth of December memories in this mini. So this year marks the last one being documented in this book. I am not doing anything daily (as in the December Daily project that Ali Edwards do) and since I do Project Life every week this album is all about our December traditions and sometimes I do have double recordings, but for me it is all ok. What I have felt special about working in my December mini is that I go all in with glitter, cheesy wordings etc. It´s fun! I fitted 3 years of Decembers in one album and this year I am getting a new album, but will still do the same thing.

Today I thought I´d share a few favorite pages and elements from the past 3 years before I start the new album.

1. I really like that I have included the things I have been inspired by every year. I take a screen…

Kellie Stamps CT 2016 | November

I'm so happy about the re-release of two alpha sets this month from Kellie Stamps! Slim Jim is a set I use all the time for all kinds of projects. 

Here is a new page I did for the re-release.

I've been so inspired by fellow team member Diane and her awesome traveller notebooks lately. She often creates backgrounds using her alpha stamps, so I lifted her and made this background for my layout. I very rarely use any other color than black to stamp with, but after using this blue/teal Ink I may have to start. 

Since my love is worse in his MS his wheelchair is a must. We are that couple that hold hands a lot and that is something I miss. But when the road is a tiny bit downhill we totally hold & roll :)
