I am still doing art everyday, and I would say that I have done art journaling about 5 days a week since the first of the year and I posted a ton of my art journal pages earlier but I have been so busy with OWOH, doing Valentines, updating this site a little and doing some other work and crafts I have not had time to scan anything, I plan to have a bunch more scans by the end of the month
This one is a art journal page
I used a map of Paris from an old atlas and gessoed lightly over it then did a sheer shimmer rinse over that.

Yesterday was Goth coffee and i did some very basic pages while visiting with friends and this morning I spent a couple hours taking apart a LUCKY and a huge VANITY FAIR magazine and sorting the pictures into my filing box (a large hanging file box with about 20 files, I need more hanging files to sort better)
Here are yesterdays art journal mini pages, I plan on doing my weekly 8×8 in journal page this weekend, with some collage stuff

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 have done a few simple pages in my mini 4x6in journal which I carry with me the most lately, nothing to complex yet since I can carrying it round in public and still finding out how much I can do in the smaller set up.
I will post pics of the pages soon

Bought two new Co-Mo Sketch books today at Fred Meyer’s for about $4 each. They are 6×6″ and 9×9″ which are odd sizes to find, they are also 80Lbs weight paper which is a bit stronger than most sketch book paper. If they have more on the 1st I will grab a couple more.
I also signed up to try doing a daily art journaling session, even if it is only 10 mins a day. This is part of the reason I am interested in these twoo sketchbooks since I Journal in a 8″x8″ inch multi-media format I can carry these, work on them and then mount the pages I like in my journal
