Finished Journal....

What a wonderful feeling....my art journal is completed! This particular one covers about a year and a half of my life...I don't work in my art journal on a daily basis, it is usually more like once or twice a month. I wish I had more time to devote to it, but my photography business keeps me so busy that I don't always have as much time as I would like for art projects lately. The fun part now is that I get to make a new one! I think I am going to make the next one by hand this time because this one is in an old book and it is really starting to fall apart. In a way, that kind of adds to the charm of the book but it also means that it is pretty fragile and cannot be looked through quite as easily. It was really cool to sit down with this journal last night and slowly go through all of the pages...It really took me back to what I was feeling at those times in my life and it was interesting to see how my art and journaling style has evolved over the past year and a half. I am really proud of myself for sticking with my journal because I tend to be all over the map sometimes with projects so this is an accomplishment for me. I will post my new journal as soon as it is completed...Have a great Monday!

Your journal looks fab. I work pretty much the same way in my journal. I'll work in it sporadically. It's fun to revisit the pages later on. Great job.

Wow, truly amazing Jill. You should be so proud of yourself- really incredible work. And that it's fragile just makes it that much more special. :-)

What a beautiful journal, Jill. The pages of Clancy are so sweet...the love you had for him bounces off the pages.

Love the photos of Miss Emmy...the second one down is amazing. It's just perfect in every way!
