Finished my Art Journal!



Last night I finished my last pages in my Moleskine Art Journal! Yay!

It's always a bit bitter-sweet to finish an Art Journal. Sweet, because you've done a great job filling those pages with yummmmyyy paints, collages, jouralling, etc. etc., but bitter because you will never get to work in that book again, and it was such a great place to be, playing with paints, jotting down your dreams..

Now, as much as I love Moleskines, and I really, really do, my next Art Journal will be one I made from old card board boxes and Easter egg boxes. Just to see how that will work for me, a journal made from recycled materials.

I will be posting pictures of the last pages I have done soon, but right now, there's a double bill of ER on, with the lovely George Clooney... Gotta go!

  2. Lucy, you 'just' have to get some paint out and get started. I always felt much better after I had drizzled at least some paint on the page, so it's not a blank page anymore. I guess that's the reason I did not feel so bad when paint spilled over to the next spread, either. ;)

  5. Such a wonderful accomplishment, a full journal! I have so many "almost finished" journals that I look forward to what it's like to officially call one "finished" so thanks for sharing! ~ Tammy
