Art Journal Everyday *Rediscover*

I've been doing quite well on my Art Journal Everyday challenge - quite surprisingly too.  I've only missed a couple of days but, between shopping for the items to make the journal (yes! that counts) and assembling the actual journal, it's been constant.  Unfortunately my first page didn't come out as I had envisioned but I am done ... and thats what matters.  I even used an entire package of rub-ons that have been in my collection for years.  Good-bye stash.  Finally, I have found a creative groove that I am thrilled to have back.  From art to scrapping to beading, the ideas are flowing.  My mind is full once again ... which works out rather well being that I am now on the Aunti Em's Design Team.

Here are some shots of the first page I did in my journal.  I decided to combine my (Ali Edwards) One Little Word with the first page of my art journal.  Not the greatest of photos but it get's the point across.  The only thing I have left to do in it is figure out how I want to add the date it was made - - or finished.  I love, love how Donna Downey uses the shipping tags as her signature date recorder and I really want a signature date piece of my own ... I just need to figure out what exactly that is going to be ... although it is really tempting to incorporate the DD method because I love it so.  If I dont come up with something in the next week or so - - - maybe......

Until then, I bid you all creative happiness.

I love the idea of the tag. Maybe even just changing the shape or size or how it's affixed to the pages could be enough ... enjoy it! You do fine work Mellisa!

What a lovely spread! Love the pink and the flowers! And tags sound great. Maybe you'll evolve your own signature over time?
