Wanna know a secret ???


I'd like to tell you it is because I was without any form of communication on a

TROPICAL  ISLAND                                  painting a masterpiece - 

but that would be a lie !  I was simply not paying attention when several weeks slipped right past me.

Connie over at Dirty Little Footprints Studio got my attention today and has convinced her readers to expose one of our art journaling secrets in exchange for a chance to win a great prize in her giveaway here.  You can enter too by the way...

My secret is that I don't art journal as much as I would love to because I feel like I'm wasting product!  After all no one will see it except me - right?  I love that an art journal is my place  to experiment with new product, mediums and techniques and that part of the freedom to explore is that no one will see it but me.  But .....I have to admit that I pass over my favorite papers or special trinkets and use something else.

Any secrets you wish to share?  If not - I'd love it if you left a comment saying what was special about your weekend ?  Thanks for stopping by ;-)


  1. my secret is that I don't do it in an actual journal but on handpainted papers or scraps I find. Then I bind them into annual books later.

    ps - your link doesn't work

  2. Linda, what do you mean you are the only one who sees it? Isn't that enough - yourself, to put in all the good stuff? You deserve those great papers and trinkets! Come one girl, make yourself your number ONE !!!

  3. I feel the same way... not just about using great materials , but also about spending all the time on it too.if i'm the only one to see it. Glad i'm not the only one who thinks like that.. It's a serious journal block.

  4. This is so cool, I luv your piece and yes, you should journal your art everyday, all day, it's fabby GF!
