One of the things I love most about art journaling is that there are no rules. Your pages can be as different as the day is long. The variety of products to try or techniques to use are endless. You don’t have to use any store-bought items, either. You can make your own designs and embellishments. I really like mixing things up and using old and new products from my stash.
I’ve been working with someone for the last few months who replies “Noted” to acknowledge my emails. I know from that one word, she’s told me she understands and needs no further elaboration. So efficient. I love it!
As I was working in my journal, I realized procrastination had taken hold of me. I started doodling thoughts about responsibility and self-motivation. As I started writing out positive thoughts, I remembered Tim Holtz’s chipboard words. Imagine my smile when I found “Noted” among the choices!
I am getting close to sharing some new ideas with you. The learning curve to revamp my website to reflect these new ideas is tough. I’m learning a ton but it’s very slow going. I can’t wait to share it all. As with any new endeavors, it’s easy to be sidetracked. To procrastinate. To be distracted. So I gave myself these messages today: Every action has a consequence (and) Every step moves you forward.
I’ve I enjoyed combining the artist trading cards (ATCs) and adding some stamping and stenciling to the page. It only seemed fitting to top off that little collage with the Believe ATC.
All the little hexagons are from a Sizzix die. I colored them with Distress Inks and used lots of stamps and stencils to add interest.
