Mind and Body: Art Journaling with Shari Carroll

Wow… it’s the last day of 2017…how did that happen? Happy New Year everyone!!!

I’m not into doing New Years resolutions but I do like to make attempts at improving my personal self. I need reminders though and I thought it would be fun to include my notes and thoughts in an art journal page.

I’ve started out with my Dylusions journal, Simon Says Stamp Framed Cosmo and Framed Mum, All Caps Alphabet steel craft dies, along with some really fun Jane Davenport papers, washi tape and ink markers.

I created pockets by die cutting the flowers frames, trimming them down and adding paper behind them. I’ve secured them to the page with washi tape. TIP: If you want to make your washi tape more permanent, use a medium or glue to seal it.

Once I had my pockets in place, I cut some paper, stamped some reminders for myself and added a little journaling. These can slide into the pockets so I can review my progress.
