Art Journal 2016 | 002

I have continued to work in my art journal since I posted last time. I am really enjoying it! Last week I had the awesome luck to win a one year membership to the Get Messy workshop. Wohoo! As I have said before, I am not committing to do anything every day or week, I want to rather keep this casual and fun, but I am so happy to be able to get so much great inspiration and prompts that I know I will get there. I have been looking through the Instagram tag #getmessyartjournal and my gosh there are so many inspiring projects in there!

So, here are a few of my recent pages. I have played with watercolors, which I love. But also with some acrylic paints for backgrounds. I love to paint with the really thick color.

Ah, quotes, you know I love me some good quotes! This one above is actually a clear stamp from Studio Calico and I love how whimsical it looks.
The right page here above is actually the first one I made with one of the Get Messy prompts. It was to use favorite colors. I opted to use my watercolors again :) I had so much fun painting the triangles!

This last one is one of my favorites. As you might know, my One little word for this year is alive, and I used it as inspiration for when I chose my letters for this. I am the first to say that I am not a doodler, but I had fun doing the leaves and flowers for this.

Thank you for stopping by today!

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 :)
