Art Journal Every Day: Daily Pages from December

ArtJournalEveryDayLogo-150If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here.  All of the previous posts can be found archived here.  There is a flickr group for sharing right here.  Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day!  No need to finish anything or even like it.  If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post.  Thanks!

Helloooooooooo!  I'm sharing some more pages from my every day art journal with you today.  I was trying to find some sort of theme that tied these pages together, but they feel pretty darn random to me.  Maybe you'll see something that I don't?

I really hope that you're not sick of eyes because I'm just getting started!  The obsession is still super strong.

Putting my hand carved day-of-the-week stamps to use in my art journal!

I often write phrases from my daily life in my art journal. Someone gave me a most excellent compliment (she said I had a "sparkling intelligence") and I simply had to get it down in my journal for posterity!

Of course, stamps from #CarveDecember continue to show up in my art journal!

As you'll recall, I showed you the start of this page in a video I posted a while back.

The numbers are hand carved stamps.  I stamped and then embossed them.  I think the embossing looks great on top of the washi tape.

Pages with holes make me happy.  A little something unexpected.

This is a glue page -- i.e. a page where I simply glued down a bunch of stuff.  I used some sparkly glitter tape in white that doesn't show up particularly well in photos.  But it adds a fun flash of texture.

Lots of leftover bits and bobs!

This is a small mixed media collage that I made and didn't love enough to frame.  But I didn't want to get rid of it. So, into the art journal it went!!

Can you find the reindeer in the photo above?

Here's that hole again!  I'm always a fan of things that make you want to touch the pages and interact with them -- holes, flaps, pockets, etc.

So there you have it: a very random collection of pages.  I hope you feel inspired to dive into your art journal and create some randomness!

Here is this week's linky list:

Thanks for stopping by!
