Project Monday

Wow!  I can't believe March is almost over.  I am still loving time with my family in Washington, and hope that this month has been good to you too : )

For my project this week, I though it would be nice to share a page in my Spring travel art journal.....

You may have seen THIS post on my personal blog, where I shared a day of art journal making with my little brother and sister.....

My Spring Travel Art Journal
*March Flowers*

And so, I figured it would be perfect to add my photo from our last photo prompt to my little 4x7.5 inch journal.  I ended up not adding the photo in order, but instead, choosing some pages that I though it look best with.  And the flower photo is actually a full page, where I'll add something fun to the back side eventually.  The journaling is taken from my post, and I doodled around it with a dark purple marker.  The purple frame that is on the photo itself is a Hambly sticker, and the alphas are from the Color Me Miki shop.  I really did enjoy this small project and am happy with how colorful and happy it turned out.....which is perfect because I was so excited for the pretty pretty raindrops that day <3

I plan to share more of the pages I've completed in my journal on my personal blog sometime this week.  It's simple, but I think the fact that I am actually adding a photo with journaling everyday has to count for something : )
And now here is Blondie's sweet project.....

...Using her art journal that she created and handbound herself!!!

And here are her thoughts on the process:

I used this wonderful colored paper for these photos because I thought it was just perfect for enhancing nature photos!  The birds and butterflies flying around!  They make me feel happy and joyful :)  Although, Gnome world is especially my favorite!  The way the grass is so green and the plants are so purple its so fairytale like.  And the Pink flower looks like it's so sad that it has not been bought yet!  The Feild of white is like a soft pillow of flowers, and the photo of the catkins from an alder tree reminds me of catapiller in chrysalis.  This whole experience has just been so fun!!! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have a great week!!!
Love, Carrie and Blondie
