Get ready for this coming year!! Our THEME is
I have 6! YES SIX!! Amazing gals who will be guest hosts this year with me!! If you would like to link here, please DO!! The address to link to, is http://oneyearartjournal.blogspot.com. I would love to see more people playing along. Please note, that if you are finding us mid year, you are WELCOME to join us ANY time. In fact, we hope you do! We already have some sign ups for our NEW COMMUNITY!! If you’re interested in extending this connection, or you’re part of our Flickr group and would like a place with MUCH better communication and discussion tools, JOIN IN!! We’ll still have the flickr group, but the ning group will be an excellent way for us to extend what is already started. This group will be focused on the art journal prompts here, nothing else.
I can’t do it without all of YOU!! Otherwise, it’s just me talking to myself over there.
Prompts will come out twice a month.
I will host prompts on the 15th of every month, and one of the guest hosts will provide the prompt on the 30th of every month!
Please leave a comment on the posts you create something for, and leave a link to what you’ve created!! I visit all the links left in the comments section.
Take some time to meet the GUEST HOSTS!!
Over the next two weeks, I’ll be sharing more about the girls, and we’ll be posting more about deciding on art journals. In the mean time… I thought I’d re post some things I’ve written and found on line to help you start thinking.
First, you need to choose what you’ll be USING for your art journal. I will be hosting prompts using ATC sized pieces, made from a deck of playing cards. HERE is a post I’ve done about how I make the backside of my ATC’s ready for journaling. If you choose to create journals using playing cards, then you can either choose to create a box for your creations, or you can wait. I will advise you, that when I was finished with my Deck of ME with Emily, my little slender deck of 52 cards had more then quadrupled in thickness at the end of the year!! lol so whatever you create, you’ll want to make lots of room. Think cigar boxes, or VERY LARGE office rings. I used a mid sized recipe box that I altered.
ALSO… if you don’t have a LEAST one of the books recommended in the sidebar, those are great places to start too!!
