My Thirty Days Journal Update

IMG_0497 IMG_0494 IMG_0493 IMG_0498

Here is what I have been doing to my art journal for the Thirty Days of Thanks. I have added some more detail and finished edges to the cover, front and back (first and last photos here). And inside the front cover I have created a couple of pages, one with my objectives and the other with a kind of title page (middle two photos).  I love mixed media and collage. Part of my purpose for creating this little journal is to practice it along with my journal writing, to explore new ways to create. 

If you are participating in this project with me, please understand that you can do this however you want! However you decide to record your thanks is just fine. Whether it be by taking photos, writing something down by hand or in your computer, by sharing on your blog, or just by taking the time each day to express that thanks…you must do what your heart is calling you to do. 

My intention is to write about this on my blog once a week, on Fridays. I will give you a summary of my week on those days and invite you to comment here or send me an email (if you wish) to let me know how it is going for you. 

Of course, this means that October is flying by and November will be here next week!  Where has the time gone?

Thanks for stopping by. Red heart

  1. I love your art journal! I know you'll enjoy filling it up with gratitude! I haven't decided yet how to record my thoughts. I guess I'd better get busy, November is really close!!

  2. Deborah,

    This is beautiful already, I'm so excited to see this side of you. So glad you came up with this idea and sharing it with us.

    I might just be sticking to my Project Life daily gratitude pictures as my project, but really wanted a journal like this too. So many ideas to choose from. Last year I did it thru my Project Life and figured I should do it again.
    Will let you know on Nov. 1st I guess.

    Have a link on Friday's sounds perfect to me. Can't wait to see everyone's and I will do my best to link up here with yours.

    Happy Weekend, it is getting cold for us isn't it. We had our first frost yesterday.
