Happy New Year everyone! Hope you were able to enjoy some quiet time during the holidays. I had a nice break but did miss posting and visiting while taking the time off. And I am READY for a new year!
Time to say goodbye to Christmas decorations...
Time to play with new art supplies:
Collage Stuff-each of which only cost me $2 !!
So, who else got some new art supplies-and what are they?? Do tell:)
Anyone choose a new word/phrase for the year??? You can see mine in the detail pic at the top.
I recently read the book 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up' and enjoyed it very much. Have any of you read it? Now, I have NO plans to be so drastic with some of the techniques however I knew this and my chosen word comes at a perfect time. Especially after having renovations done and needing to look for places to store more stuff until everything was completed.Yikes! I'm going to cleanse that which doesn't serve me or my well being any longer-no matter what it is. Clothes. Books. Mementos. Art supplies. Etc.
I created my affirmation page from a bonus lesson in Tam Laporte's LifeBook 2015 online class. Another great new lesson and technique.
And look what I spotted only after I finished it (text on the left side):
I also made a dream board/ mood board page :
Cut and paste collage using calendar pics, Oprah magazine and a few stickers.
So looking forward to connecting with you again. Joining with T Stands For Tuesday; The Simon Monday Challenge (Start Afresh); Art Journal Journey (new monthly theme is "Every Journal Page Tells A Story" hosted by Erika) and Paint Party Friday. See you soon!
