As you’re already very much aware, I’m SO loving my new art journaling addiction!
One of the best parts of it, to me—besides just the sheer fun of making each one, is that I seem to learn something every time…whether about the process of making the page—or something about myself…
Favorite quotes from favorite people grace many of my pages so far…even sometimes from someone “Unknown”…
We all strive for perfection, don’t we? It’s not always possible though, is it? And sometimes, that’s just really okay.
As I was outlining my ribbon frame, my pen kept slipping…YIKES!, I thought—I’m going to have to cover the mistakes somehow…
Then, I read the quote that I had just written inside the frame, and I breathed a little sigh…and forgot all about the mistakes. And was happy.
And one of my very favorite quotes. EVER. What a wise, wise woman was Mrs. Roosevelt…
Go ahead, make some mistakes. Learn something. Be happy. And don’t let anyone let you feel otherwise.

I always tell people that once you start journaling you can't stop. I've been doing it for years and it's still the one thing I always return to out of everything I love to do. Your pages are fabulous! I have a couple new pages of my journaling style posted on my blog right now too. Sure is fun!
Julie, these are great pages! I love the quotes you used!ReplyDelete

Julie, your art journal is very inspiring! I love the quotes youve been using and how they have such meaning to you.. (and all of us!)ReplyDelete
Such wonderful art journal pages. That Mrs. Roosevelt was one wise owl!:) I was wondering, did you use digital elements for the majority of these specific pages? Everything looks so very vibrant and crisp...lovely.ReplyDelete
Julie, I love your imperfections!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you found me so I could find you. I'm also surprised we haven't met before. I am following you now so I won't miss anything. It's amazing how many people there are out there who have similar tastes and hobbies and interests. I'm so glad I started blogging, so I could meet people like you! I especially enjoyed this post you just did because I am trying to have an attitude adjustment and choose happiness and think positive, and your little creations gave me a little boost. Thank you for that! So nice to meet you!
Hugs and blessings,
So beautiful Julie!!! Happy Autumn! xo HeatherReplyDelete

Oh Julie, there is no end to the possibilities of merging poetry/thoughts and art in a journal. I am going to make one with THE FIVE SENSES.....each five chapters will begin with a drawing and then the pages will be devoted to writing words that come to mind for each sense.....HAVE FUN and thank you for visiting. It is always a grand plaîsir to see your gorgeous photo on my comments page! AnitaReplyDelete
