This year I am striving to have the most creative year I’ve ever had. I know, lots of people say that, but I am going on record to say that I’m determined to make more art, teach more classes, and work harder than I have ever worked before to make creativity a top priority in my life. It sustains my soul. I get grumpy if I don’t get to work on art projects for several days in a row.
Bright and early this morning I finished a journal that I started at Thanksgiving during a Gratitude Journal class that I co-taught with my closest friend, Jessica Hartwell.
The journal was created by spray painting large water color sheets with stencils. Then the sheet were cut down into size and bound together. Jessica and I swapped a few pages, so my journal has a mix of colors.
All of the stars on the pages inspired me to do a motivational journal rather than a gratitude journal and once the cover was complete, I added the title “Magical Me.” (Yes, totally a Harry Potter reference in case you’re wondering).
Here is a flip through of the final product. If you like it, please leave a comment below and let me know which page is your favorite and why.
