One of my favorite hobbies is art journaling. Art journaling is like a combination of scrapbooking and journaling. It is one of my favorite ways to preserve moments in time and is fun to look back on and see where my heart was at during a certain time in life. I have been taking a class online that offers different challenges and topics for each page created. Sadly the class is no longer open, but this is a similar class and I hope to take it as soon as I am finished with this one! I have shared several pages on our blog in the past, and thought it was time for another page update. Some of these pages are from our time in Australia, and some I have made since returning home. So here you go, a peek into my life via my art journal:
For this page, I was challenged to mix patterns of paper. I had lots of little scraps that I loved and thought it was great how they fit together. I was also supposed to write a note to someone. I created this page for my love Dane. I laughed when I found this drawing of a bearded tattooed man, and it pretty much sums up my feelings for my man, he is my amazing friend. It was the perfect find!
For these pages I had lots of challenges. One was to create a frame with fabric and stitch on the page. I was also challenged to use a picture within a picture and create a double page spread. I decided to dedicate these pages to my nephew Corbin. Being an aunt has been one of my favorite parts of 2014, and he's growing so fast, so I wanted to freeze a couple special moments in time.
here and here and here. What about you? What are some of your favorite hobbies? How do you document moments and memories? Until next time! Love y'all!
