A Year in the Life of an Art Journal

I'm a day late because life has once again kicked me while I'm down but here is the new A Year in the Life of an Art Journal prompt brought to you by Rachel!

THE PROMPT: My Favorite Things
ie: a few of the things you LOVE about someone you love. Can be alive or dead.
THE STUFF: Lists and ephemera
ie: have a few tokens from that someone? Maybe the cover of the CD with "your song" or a napkin from the restaurant you both love to eat at...
THE TECHNIQUE: Pockets
ie: Use pockets to store those "things" on your page.

I have so many scrapbooking supplies that I "just had to have" when the craze was on so I used a bunch of them in place of ephemera. I did a page on what I love about John and loved the eclectic mix of goodies on this page. It's times like these that I'm glad I hoarded so many scrap supplies because it truly does come in handy when art journaling, so dig into those scrapbooking supplies people!!
Don't be afraid to mix it up! Here's my take on the prompt:















It's so fitting that this was the prompt because on Valentine's Day John got me an ipad2!!!!!!! Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! I was soooo surprised and happy!! I was in my art room on the computer and asked him where my calculator was and he said "did you check under the blueprints?" so I lifted up the blueprints that were sitting on the computer desk and there was a shiny new 32GB black ipad 2 sitting there!! For moi!!!! How lucky am I?? He knew I was wanting one for so long and he surprised me with it. Just another reason why I love him so.

















I haven't had much time to play around with it but I did get it synced and set up and have played a few of my games on it. It's so much better playing games on this rather than the little iphone! haha I'm leaving tomorrow for vacay to see my parents and will be taking it with me and looking for a nice case for it while I'm in Calgary. So...I will see you all later when I return!
