Mixed Media Leftover Art Journal

Welcome friends!

Have you ever seemed so busy that you feel you can't scrape any Art Journaling time in?  Absolutely, we all have. I have a wonderful solution, a LeftOver Art Journal.

One of the reasons I Art Journal is to cope with my anxiety and stress.  When I'm "too busy" to fit any art into my day I end up feeling even more stress from all that "busyness".  Of course this stresses me out even more and then... well, you get the picture.

One option that works well for me is playing in my Leftover Art Journal.  Learn more about it here:

Doing a quick sketch, or journaling, or titling one of these pre started Art Journal pages is soothing, and even fun.  I enjoy looking at these pages filled with random paint, stamps, sprays, papers and scrapbook supplies, and with little time you can easily create an awesome page.  Try it, I'd love to see what you create!

Check out the full book here!

Soo much on the go.  As of the date of this post I have 8 days left of my "Day Job", and only 3 weeks until I move.  I have been spending all of my time purging and packing, as well as balancing my gym schedule. 

As the days get closer I find myself feeling more and more excited about this transition in life.  I have so many plans (including a cool mini class for this book!) and I am so excited to share them with you!

Thanks again for your support and friendship.

Much Love xo


  1. I love the concept of the left over journal. I saw your video a while back and immediately loved it. I made one myself and it is allready lookig really cool. So thanx for your tip, love it.

  2. Funny how change like that can be scary and exciting all at the same time ;) I'm looking forward to redesigning my art space when we finally have to move. I want to have a computer station, art desk station and hopefully a cutting station which I am missing here in this tiny room ;)

    I don't have a left over journal but I'm kinda doing the same thing with old pages I either didn't really like or felt were left unfinished. I'm really enjoying the process of watching the pages transition into something new. Can't wait for the mini class! Woohoo!

  3. I LOVE your journal! I have a leftovers journal, inspired, of course, by you. But I need to get busy doing more other stuff so I can get it filled with many more leftovers, not near enough layers yet! Good luck with the move...looking forward to seeing your new art set up once you get settled. And also looking forward to hearing about the mini class - what fun!

  4. Can't wait to find out more - your are full of inspiration and tips and love your ideas! Keep your art going thru the move and you may find fun, happy, and inspiring things in the most unlikely of places.

  5. I love this idea! It seems perfect for the time I have available for journaling these days.

  6. Beautiful journal pages! so much inspiration. :)

  7. Thanks again for your inspiration. Good luck with the move! I shudder to think of packing up all of my supplies.
    Aloha, Kate
