Well, that's not strictly true, Santa brought me some money, and with that money I bought myslf a lovely little pocket-sized Moleskine journal....and that's roughly the same thing isn't it?
So, I thought I'd use it to keep track of my 'Project Zero' goals.... more on that later....and also try my hand at regular art journalling, as I've only barely dabbled in it before.
My plan is to work in the journal every day - not necessarily to finish a whole page every day - some of my days are just too busy for that - but to at least do SOMETHING daily - maybe just prep some pages, slap down some backgrounds etc.
Nicole Maki's blog to Julie Balzer's "Art Journal Every Day" challenge, which basically said exactly the same thing - spend 10 mins a day working in your journal in some capacity - perfect! Even I can find 10 minutes!
And so far this year that's exactly what I've done.
On January 1st, I gessoed up the first 12 pages in the book ready to work on.
On January 2nd I made the background for the page below.
And on January 3rd, today, I added the words, and the sun, and the little houses (I bought that new punch with Santa's money too :))
Oh yes, and before I forget, I hope you all had a great Christmas (I did :) ), and Happy New Year everyone!!!
PS it seems that 10 minutes a day isn't nearly enough when you're having fun - I was just taking the recycling bins out and spotted an unused christmas cracker hat, purple, sitting on top of the recycle pile all unloved.... and well, I couldn't let it go to waste! And so I've started work on page 2:
