This book will be a year in the making and will be
a hybrid Scrapbook/Art Journal/Calendar.
My theme for this year is
"Be Generous, Thankful, and Creative Every Day"
Here is my cover:
My book is 9"x12" and really is rectangular - the pictures look all wonky because when you add layers and layers of paint, paper, and decoupage medium the paper no longer lies flat! Each month will have a calendar page on the right and a scrapbook style page on the left. The calendar page will have a box for each day to write something in for that day. At the beginning of the month the blank calendar page will be posted and at the end of the month the completed page is posted along with the blank for next month. These all get linked up at Kate's site, there are already 96 people participating this year! Hopefully we will all get to visit a few of each others blogs for inspiration and to leave encouragement.
The left side of my January page is not really scrapbook style, the idea hadn't really gelled in my head yet, but it's really pretty! It contains definitions cut from an antique dictionary of my three key words.
My other month's I do intend to do the left side scrapbook style.
So here is the left side of January:
And the right side of January:
And the spread together:
At the suggestion of a fellow blogger, I have added a "follow by e-mail" request button to my side bar. Since I do not post every day, instead of checking in, you can submit your e-mail and you will get a message on the days I have a new post.
Thank you for looking at my blog today! I truly appreciate your comments and input!
