wooooo! we did it for a whole YEAR! i'm pretty proud of us! i've never done anything like this before and it was such a great experience. thanks to everyone who travelled along and supported each other on this art journal journey!
the challenges will be left here on my blog for those who are still going or want to pick it up again. i'll let you know next sunday what i have decided to do on my blog for 2008!
our final prompt in our 52 week art journal challenge is: ART.
there is just so much you can do with this one! let loose ;)
i chose to write about what art is to me right now (amongst other things!)
art is things that look pretty to me
art is making something with my own two hands
art is a gift
art is splashes of colour
art is an expression of the self
art is the written word
art is my children
art is capturing little moments
art is happiness
art is everywhere
art is my life!
i'm so glad we did this :) it was hard some sundays to get the motivation and energy or even timing to make a card...but looking at them all - these little pieces of me and my life this year - it makes me all tingly! i ended up putting all my cards into baseball card sheets to bind into my big scrapbooks - they look cool altogether like that. if you get a chance this week - post a picture of your whole stash of cards in their 'home' as well as your last card - i can't wait to see them. thanks for joining me this year - i've loved getting to know you through your art, your comments and your friendship. have a happy happy new year and i'll be back with some new challenges for 2008 soon! (and there are still a few days left to sign up for my online class if you want to try some cool techniques and listen to my ramblings!).
