I'm making a bunch of art journals this week (or plan to anyway) and think I'm going to go with a small size so I can feel accomplished when they're full!!  That's also what made me think about the color I hate the most journal...I think I'm going to start with that one first, just to get it out of the way.

I've been busy trying to learn some science theory. Hope to get some journaling done soon!  I keep looking in my journal and thinking of ideas, now to get them on paper!

Hope to jump in here from time to time as I've started a Travel journal (thanks to phizzychick, i think).  I'm also in a journal page swap that has just begun, so I can keep up w/any progress here, too.  And I don't know if it qualifies for here, but I've got a Teesha Moore-like journal started.  That one will be more involved and pics will be few...ha!(It'll probably be the one that gets the most time!)

I've got some back reading to do, but here is my first starts:

Travel Journal(an old wildflowers book):


and my TM-like journal(beginning collage stage):

I haven't looked at my altered journal for a long while.  Need to get back to it soon, and your list is a great inspiration bethie.

I like the travel pages kittymom.  I may be speaking to the wrong people here, but I'm not especially a fan of Teesha Moore's style.  Perhaps it is all the faces that she uses, I don't tend to put faces on the things I do or into my photography either.

Kittymom, I like the "home" page Smiley Can't wait to see more of your journals!

I have been meaning to get back into my journal and have actually sat down and looked at it and not been able to produce anything! Tongue

I've started altering a little 6-spread board book... I'm planning on doing spreads featuring things I'm thankful for....It's not exactly a journal, so do you guys think I aughta show it here?

Alrighty then Smiley


I've peeled away all of the pages, so I was left with a nice brown chip board base. I glued paper onto the cover, and used acrylic paints, inks and chalk pastels to color the pages. I haven't finished any of the inside pages yet, though.


Here's a close up of the cockatiel I drew and watercolored for the front. I also just got a metal punch alphabet set, and I've been using it like crazy.... So that metal element is soda can!
