Happy New Year! Time for a new Art Journal!

Happy New Year friends!

Daily Art Journal - 2014

2014! Can you believe it!!! It seems like yesterday was Y2K, LOL, and yet here we are. Well, with the start of the new year comes about a million different crafty, scrapbooking, or mixed media ideas and classes and I've heard a lot of great things about The Documented Life project, and I love all the things I've seen people do so far, but the "problem" with it for me is that I already scrapbook Project Life and I keep my calendars and to-do lists digitally so, for me, it doesn't really have a place.  BUT, like any great idea, I've altered it! I decided to grab a big 8.5" x 11"ish calendar book instead of a moleskin and use that. And instead of recording my to-do's, schedule, and appointments I'm recording my gratitude, blessings, and notes from my quiet time with God. 

I made a quick video on how it will work...


Here's what I have finished so far...

In the monthly calendar section I'll record my daily gratitude.

And add some doodling and artsy stuff as the month goes on.  Here's just a start of what I have...
Daily Art Journal - Gratitude1


Each month has a "notes" section that I'll journal something in.  Here's this month's...

My One Little Word for this year is "joy" in the good and the bad through my relationship with Jesus.

I will post photos of how this project/my life is going through out the year.  I think I'll label them "soul journal" so you can click over ---------> there in the categories and find it if you need to.
