We had craft night tonight at a local coffee shop and I had 3 hours to journal and visit with friends.
Part of what I did was cut out a couple dozen silver velum butterflies that say Believe in different fonts all over them, the velum takes a great tint when you use gel pens and smear it on it, I am putting on on each page of my new 2011 mini journal since Believe is my word for the year.
I then finished two single pages of the 4×6 journal
and started the background for a two page spread, using colors outside of my comfort zone
Finally I helped set up a very basic Art Journal kit for a friend just to get him going

I am working in my mini 4x6in spiral bound journal for at least 10 minutes a day everyday and still trying to get one page done in my 8x8in loose leaf journal each week (still need to scan those pages I have done)
I am not use to working so small or in a spiral notebook so it is taking a bit of learning to free myself up, also I am having to learn what I can and can’t do with this paper, it does not like watercolor directly on the pages but I can do it separately and glue a background in, which is what I think will be happening most with this book.
Here is the pages I have done in the 2011 mini art journal from Jan 1 to Jan 4
Jan 1, picture from NYE Jan 31st 2010
Half finished page from Jan 2 2011
Page done on Jan 3 and Jan 4

I just bought an 80 sheet (160 page) 4×6 in hard bound wirebound journal, and I am gluing pages together for more strength right now and then I will start decorating the covers, outside and inside
