I haven't posted Journal pages in awhile.... and in preparation of Janel's journal class, me and my mom have been art journaling together (via Skype). Getting those creative juices flowing. We came up with these prompts together and would give each other 3 materials we had to incorporate into our pages. We would then show our pages to each other after we finished. It was pretty neat to see how we both interpreted our prompts and see how we used the materials. This first page is about my favorite color. It is by far my most favorite page I have ever done!!! So much pink!!!!
This one is about what Forgiveness means to me. The pic is kinda hard to read so here is what it says.
"Forgiveness is a very difficult subject for me. I tend to hold grudges and I definitely find it hard to forget. I know in my heart I should give people second chances, but unless it's family, it's hard for me to do. It's something I work really hard in doing. I know it only harms me to hold onto negative feelings. Forgive and Forget...easier said than done."
This is the last page that concludes my journal. I made a collage of sorts to bring it all together. I used most of the materials in this one page, that I used throughout my journal. I mentioned several times I wanted to open an Etsy shop and since I have one now, I put my business card at the top to show I accomplished one of my goals.
On another note I wanted to share something amazing!! My great friend Jamie is having an amazing raffle on her blog for MS. There are lots of amazing prizes, along with a cute plushie I made just for this!!
Here is a quote directly from her blog!
"It's a blog raffle to benefit M.S.!
As you know, I was diagnosed with MS in January, 2009. It's my goal this year to raise money & awareness for this disease.
For each dollar that you donate to our Team Inspired for our local MS Walk, you will be entered to win! This will be my only fundraiser, other than my Shrinking for a Cure, that I'll be doing for M.S. this year. Let's make a difference for those fighting this incredibly unpredictable, painful & crippling disease. For more information about Multiple Sclerosis, please visit the National MS Society here. Each and every dollar matters."
So go check out her blog for more details!!!! Be a part of something amazing and show your support!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!! I'll be back on Monday to share lots of awesome mail and maybe some exciting news :)
