Two more journals ready to travel

This journal is going to be sort of a fairy tale collage book, and have works from artists over at in it. "Verzaubert" means "Enchanted".

This journal is part of the 1001 Journal project, it's #1601. Anything goes!

I have been very fascinated with traveling journals lately. I like the open, no rules style of them, and the fact that it's a shared enjoyment with others. I like the richness of the pages that people create, wether they are accomplished artists or not. There is just something freeing about letting creativity flow.

You can see some of the pages I've created for "imagine" here. I can't wait to see what else is going to be in this book!

The Sacred Stones

I don't know why I like swirls and round things so much... spirals and circles, and such show up often when I doodle. This little collage doodle is in the "just 'cause" journal, which is now traveling to Oklahoma for its' first guest artists' contribution.

Cover for a traveling journal

This is a little 5x7 journal I picked up at the dollar store. I embellished with art papers, stamped image and polymer clay face.

I call it "just 'cause" -- a free themed journal for everyone who wants to participate in it to be as creative as they like, in what ever medium they like. Just 'cause.

For now, it will travel amongst the nervousness community, and when I get it back, I may send it out on yet another adventure.

:::happy sigh::: Aaaahhhh, Art!

"I believe in fairies"

I participated with this art squared page in "a book of joy" for a seriously sick little girl. I will send happy, healthy thoughts along with it.

Secret - or not so secret wishes

I found this via Izabellas-Blue blog, and it's a wonderful idea. Why not? Together we can always accomplish more than alone:

I’d like to ask you to both make a wish (as many as you'd like) and to support each other’s wishes. It’s very simple. Just post on your blog something you really, truly, deeply (and maybe even secretly) wish for and leave a comment here to let us all know that you’ve done so.
Then everyone who is participating in Create a Connection, and anyone who sees this post, please go to each and every one of our wishes and in the comments write, “As _______ wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.” Encourage people to go over and do the same.

And just in case people come to your blog who aren’t yet a part of Try Day, feel free to ask them to join in. Just include something like, “For Try Day, I’m posting this wish of mine. A part of the experience is having other people support my dream by including in the comments, “As _____ wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.” I’d love it if you’d take part and help bring my dream come to life.”
There is great power in knowing our dreams, in saying them out loud, in having them witnessed and in the shared enthusiasm of believing in and hoping for each other.


*I wish for better health, and not need to go on yet more medication.*

*I wish to be a recognized, successful artist*

*I wish to find the monetary means to go to school for my teaching certificate.*
:::smiling::: I'll be checking on your blogs so I can support your wishes!

She imagines...

wild woman sense
vivid shimmer dreams

When I look at that doodle from the last post there, it seems so BRIGHT. Did I do that?

I feel much much darker today.
Like this.
The colors are not represented well because of the artificial light, it's quite grey today. A fine drizzle of snow is descending....
