I got a whole stack of magazines and catalogs in the mail the other day, so guess what I did? I tore and cut them up and created new pages for my visual journal.
I think I used this month's Martha Stewart Living, LL Bean catalog and The Bark magazine. :)
Here are the themes that emerged for me this time...
Home - Colors and Textures
Crafts & Inspirations
Celebrating Senior Dogs
I just made a new Squidoo Lens (a how to lesson) on how I create my visual journals.
I often sit down for 10 or 20 minutes at a time to work in my journal whenever my new magazines arrive in the mail. It is a time that I set aside for myself to find and save things that make me smile and happy. I find that whenever I finish a page, I close the whole book and thumb through it from beginning to end several times. It is fun to see what pages I created previously as they are all things that I like and have meaning for me.
and I am so honored that my pug collage from my etsy store was selected to be in AmandaMonkey's Treasury. Check out her wonderful Dolls and Gocco Prints!
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
Have a wonderful day!
