I'm still planning to send by Friday. If I get super motivated it might be ready before then...but since I'm not feeling well we'll just have to see how that goes.

Sorry I've been so quiet...school in starting to ramp up and it's totally cutting into my online time! Wink The quarter is sort of tough on my schedule wise...but I'm having a lot of fun in my classes. For those who don't know...my program is I am working on an associates of fine arts - metalsmithing. So one of my class projects is that I'm making my wedding rings. Smiley Right now I've been working up prototypes out of base metals...but I can't wait to get a chance to work with gold.

As for this swap...I have an idea and now I just need to work on making it. We have a 3 day weekend from school so I'll get it done over the weekend one way or the other.

Wow...I'm away from the computer for a couple days and a whole bunch of people show up! Cheesy

I'm already loving the pages you guys have posted:

@Audio: I love the spread you posted. The colors are amazing...can't wait to see it finished!

@Leatherandlace: I like how you are using an old diary to create a new art journal. Part of me thinks you should keep at least some of the old diary pages for posterity...but then I'm super glad my diaries from my youth didn't survive. I went through a truly horrible poetry phase that doesn't need to ever be found again.  Roll Eyes

Also: I'll be catching up on making links for everyone on the main page...but it will take me a few days. I have school Mon-Thurs and the last couple days I've been sick. I should be able to catch up with everyone by the weekend though.

I have a good idea of what I want to do for my wall art. Now lets see if I can pull it off! Smiley  Either way I'm excited for this swap and can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with too.

I finished making my table in my creative space today, so I have somewhere to work in my altered journals now! I have been feeling a little lost lately, so I plan to create an entire altered journal about who I am and who I want to be.

That is a great idea for a journal. Sort of an adult version of "when I grow up I wanna be...".

I'm still trying to answer that question. Smiley

Make sure you post the link here! I try not to browse too much through craftsters as I get sucked into it and all my available creative time gets spent on-line.

And I have a small addiction to swaps that I can't afford at the moment...

Here is the link to the 2013 Art Journal-along: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418689.new;topicseen#new

I completely understand about swap addictions. I am on strict limits to the amount (and what type) of swaps I can do right now.

I'd love to participate in this
i do a mix of art journaling and regular journaling
but motivation and community is great!
how does this work tho? by saying i want to be in means I'm in?

Pretty much what trinalocakary said. Smiley 

All you have to do to "sign up" is participate. Just use your first posting as a place to update with pictures as you work on your journal. It's up to you how much or how often you want to post. Once you start having a thread you are updating I'll post a link to it so that it is easier for people to find each others journals. It's sort of like your own mini gallery. Smiley 

Though if you are wanting to participate please make a new post for your journal page to update so that we can keep this info here for others. I can't wait to see your journal pages. Smiley

Participant List:


Need some help getting started? Here are some Prompts to get you going:

January Promts:

1. Claim your book! Like any piece of art one of the most important parts...is the signature otherwise how does anyone know it is yours? I like the technique used by Sarah Whitmire in her Soul Journaling series for claiming your journal. I know use this basic idea as the start for all of my journals. Other ideas: Who are you? Make an "about you" page for your journal. What are all the names you've had or names you always wanted to have?  Make a page about how you feel about your name.

2. New Year's Resolutions. On my first day of winter classes last week one of my art professors shared a list of New Years Resolutions for the Artist. What would your artist resolutions be? To try an new technique? Craft something each day? Try to sell your work? Make all your Christmas gifts this year? Other ideas: Don't do resolutions...then make a page about why not!

Welcome to the 2013 Art Journal-along! One of my goals for the new year is to work on my art journal everyday...even if it is as little as 5 minutes....I'd love it if I have some company on this journey. Smiley

This is a craft-along to help inspire, encourage, and help you create your own art journal. Collage, draw, paint, altered art...all forms of art journals are welcome to join.

You don't have to wait for a page to be done in order to post. In progress photos are welcome too. What to share a technique that you liked? Post that too! The idea is to cheer each other on as much as possible, share ideas, keep each other motivated, and have fun.

To help keep things organized I'm going to post news, links, and a link to your finished journal on page 1. Update your journal thread as you complete pages so that at the end of the year we can see all the journals. Though feel free to make any in progress posts in the main thread too.
