For Project Life Week 30 I went hybrid and used the Silver Linings Digital Kit by Dearly Dee x The Stamp Spot. I printed out the elements and papers and didn’t do any pre planning.

I am officially on YouTube. After six months of watching creative videos and tutorials while I nursed my son, or while he napped on me and I couldn’t move, I’m “giving back” to the YouTube community. Those videos kept me going through the newborn stage, through teething, through struggling with not being able to work. They kept me company when E hated leaving the house.
There are a bunch of lovely women who really rock the YouTube thing that made me feel as though I needed to make my own videos. I’ll do a post on that in the future, but if YouTube is your thing then you really need to follow Essie and Dee until I write out that list.
I’ll be sharing process videos and tutorials on the same stuff as my blog – art journaling, memory keeping, paper travelogues, a sprinkle of productivity. I’m promising a new video every Tuesday. I’d love for you to join me for the ride.
My first video is a process video of a page from my son’s journal. The journal is a handbound traveler’s notebook sized junk journal that I made while pregnant. This book is special. You should know because HELLO it’s difficult as anything to write in. But I’m too attached to it to make a new one. Here are some photos from it…
It feels SO good to be “back”. If you’re reading this, I love you.
I haven’t shared art journal pages on the blog for the longest time.
My style is absolutely everywhere.
This is what happens when things are in the air, when life is not the same, when my art room is a baby room. I won’t ever share the black pages I made before these.
I thought I had not made anything with everything that’s been happening, but I seem to have been prodding along in my own ways.
Creating is important. Always create, even when all you can manage is a little.
Get Messy Season of Introspection
The Get Messy season of Introspection happened in June and July, so that should give you an idea of how my life has been for the past six months. I was able to do all the prompts in its own little journal, but not share it. Sometimes art just needs to come out.
Over the next few weeks I have nine beautiful and uniquely talented artists sharing a visual guide to her favourite way to get creative. No words allowed as answers, just photos and images. If you’d like to go through the Visual Guide archives, they’re all grouped together under Guest Post Loveliness.
