If 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!

Unfortunately, there is no linky list this week because typepad (my blog host) and inlinkz (host of the linky list) are not playing nicely together and keep crashing. I'm hoping the problem will be resolved by next week. In the meantime, feel free to leave a link to your art journaling for the week in the comments section. It won't be as pretty, but it will get the job done. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
