Resolution 2011: Art Journal Day 6

I find myself thinking about my Art Journal all the time. Thinking about projects and pages and quotes and things I want to do in it.

I'm so happy I made this resolution. It's the only time I'm really taking to create for myself these days. Creating with no expectations, no deadlines, no pressure. Just playing, using scraps -- using up old stuff. Total heaven.

Since I'm dreaming a lot about what I'm going to plant in my garden (and spring and much warmer weather) this is a fitting page. I'm not sure if you can tell, but the focal point of the page is a bunch of red onions, the image transfer didn't turn out as I expected, but that's ok because I made it work....and I know what is is so that's all that matters anyway.

I'd love to know what your Resolution for 2011 is/was and if you're sticking with it. It's hard, but you can do it, especially if I can. I'm the worst at filling up art journals and sticking with commitments like this, but I'm doing it - at my own pace and in my own time! It feels great.

Well, thanks for stopping by, hope your week is going as great as mine is!
