Creative Jump Start Journal

I want to share a little 
something with you that I have started for the new year. For some time now I have been wanting to do a journal of projects, art, photos, what-have-you... a type of Smash book per say... of my own design... just casual, messy, off the cuff. Well, Since I was following along with the Creative Jump Start Summit 2012, I thought this was the time to start so I don't miss out on any of these great techniques and ideas.

My granddaughter, Katie 
painted this note book and put the yarn around it. It's just perfect for what I want to do. I have plans to embellish the cover later on. This is all in it's raw state.

Day one of the "Summit"
 with Dina was filled with ideas for "warming up" before you begin to create... no more mojo loss. I jotted down notes on a scrap of white cardstock and decided to glue it directly into my journal... why copy in a neater hand? This is casual right?

Today was making an ATC
using, of all things, toilet paper. Just have to try this... Cuchy's card was gorgeous! And as an interesting note... the class was in Spanish... loved it!
When time permits, I want
to embellish the pages using the techniques I'm learning. How fun is that!!!
Do you need to rev up
your mojo? You might want to try keeping a journal this year, or buy a Smash book, or just create a new scrapbook album. Your possibilities are endless!

Thanks for stopping by today!

What a wonderful idea... I have an Art journal I have done some painting in it.. But I am not that good. A little embarrassed to show it..
But I do enjoy it so..

Here's to a creative year my friend..

Hugs, Linda
