I'm still trying to maintain the weekly "creating regime" but I'm also adding bits and pieces (of art) to my journal as I create it.
Love without Hesitation - Taking the Leap
Again, I used the monthly theme as a prompt for decorating the monthly divider.
Prompt: Incorporate thread or floss
I wanted to throw this page away because I didn't like the colour combo at first. But with the thread and the quote, it looks fine.
Prompt: Use shades of one colour
This is painted on the back of the divider. I intended to stay true to the prompt but ended up adding a bit more colours.
I abandoned the "Dare2B™" concept and continue doing my motivational "word of the month" thing. I chose "prioritize" for February.
Prompt: Add a Gratitude
list TEN™ Card: Things I should never have done
This was painted at the back of the "thread" page - hence the curved edges.
For the List TEN™ Card, I did a list of things "I should stop doing to myself" instead. I will not publish my list because it's private and I personally think this theme is a bit inappropriate for an art journal. It is written with a glittery pen on kraft paper so it's illegible at first glance for anyone who might flip through my journal.
This week, I was travelling to Birmingham to take a class with Tim Holtz. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you don't say "no" to. I got a phone call from a friend who runs a scrapbook shop I spend my money in. She asked me "Hey, do you want to come to Birmingham with me to take a class with Tim Holtz in two weeks? It's going to cost a lot of money, plane tickets, hotel and ..." and I jumped in "Forget about the money, it's Tim Holtz!"
I created this page to commemorate my trip to Birmingham. I tried to use as many of Tim's products on it as possible. And I also left some space at the back to have it signed by Tim.
Prompt: Add a tiny photo
I'm not really doing the Pocket Art Cards. But I made a Project Life style spread about my Birmingham trip - photos from the trip, some print-screens from Tim Holtz's Instagram and other things.
I'm loving the unPlanner project so far. My only concern is that it's getting bulky only after a couple of months - and I have only one binder... and don't really know where to get a new one. The one I got in the UK is discontinued now.
