Can’t Help Falling in Love – Journal with Me

Can’t Help Falling in Love – Journal with Me

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.

Art Journal Pages Lately

Art Journal Pages Lately

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.

Anna

Anna has started art journaling on 2012 as a way to remember all the pretty -or not- little things of her everyday life. She loves her tombow markers and recently she fell in love with brush scripting. Art journaling for her is just like a diary combining her two loves, drawing and memory keeping.
