A Week In the Life Art Journal

Welcome everyone!!  What a beautiful Monday it has been!  I would like to share with you this quick new journal I created for Ali Edwards challenge, A Week in the Life.

Basically, the challenge is about taking pictures of the everyday life things for a week.  As I don't take many pictures, I figured it would be a great challenge for me to join.

It's a simple journal.  I bound a few sheets of watercolour paper using a file folder as a cover.  I only used four sheets of paper which is enough to create a two page art journal spread per day.  I made it while live over HERE, watch when you have a chance!  I created the cover and bound the book in this recording.

The cover is not complete (looks a little washed out in this picture), I will add the lumpy bumpy stuff when the journal is full.  My intention is to work on art journal pages to document my week rather than a scrapbook or mini album, I will be printing my little pictures and paste them right in.

I'm looking forward to a wonderful week!
Much LOVE xo

  9. Beautiful! Last year I did a week in the life with art journal pages - I did a page a day documenting what I was doing. It was lots of fun . . . more of an art diary than most of my art journal pages. You could probably find them on my blog if you wanted.
