“Memory Junk Journal” Page Prep Video Up!

Two things have happening lately: One, I’m making videos on a pretty regular basis, and Two, I’m humming right along on my “Memory Junk Journal”! YAY!

I had to make another journal insert to get started on October, so I thought I might as well film the process. I like having the backgrounds decorated to save time.

Photos from texts that would most likely not end up in a photo album, but precious memories that I needed to document.

I hope you will find the time to check out my video, some of the commentary is pretty fun!

Here’s the link to my YouTube Channel. The video is a little lengthy, but informative.

As always,

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a great weekend,

A New Art Journal, A New Video, and A Brave Decision

In my efforts to clean and declutter my spaces…and I mean ALL spaces, I decided that I still have too many half finished projects. So this quite-a-bit on the larger side journal needed to start getting worked on.

It was bound, full of pages (and potential) and ready to go…but never went anywhere, another one of those projects that left me uninspired. So, I took it apart and used the pages in other journals, all that was left was the covers and binding wires.

The other day it got a reprieve! And this morning I made a video of it’s maiden voyage (meaning I decorated a page)!

I haven’t gotten around to the journaling yet, but she’s ready to go!

I hope you will take a minute to stop by my YouTube channel and check out my page process video

Now about the “Brave” part. I’ve quit Facebook for good (I hope)! I know it sounds strange, but I almost got hacked again, I rarely use it, and seems more of a hassle than it is worth. I have control over the content in all my other social media venues, but facebook feels as if it has a mind of it’s own, like a gigantic monster…okay that’s a little over the top, but you know what I mean. But this is also another one of those “De-clutter projects” that I’ve been working over the last couple of years, a “Tech de-clutter”!

Anyway, I would really like your input on the subject. Please let me know your feelings about Facebook, good or bad, in the comments.

In the meantime,

Have a great week,

Thanks for stopping by,

September 7-11 In My Memory Journal

All I can say here is…This Was So Much Fun!

These were the days when I was helping my daughter out and watching my grandson while she worked, so he didn’t have to go to daycare everyday. She’s a stay at home mommy now, but I can still give her a break now and again.

I think one of the things I miss quite a bit is that these were taken during the summer last year. It has been a long winter for a lot people, so summer shenanigans are well and truly in order!

I hope I will find the time to continue working on this when the weather improves…cheeky boy!

There is a video that goes with this on my YouTube channel, Patty’s Art Journals, if you would like to see how this page spread came together.

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Have a wonderful day!

September 6, In My Memory Journal

Yay! Another page spread in my memory journal! All it took was a little organization to move this project forward! There is a video that goes along with this blog post where I go into a little more detail about my organization. There are still a few things to iron out, but I’m definitely making slow, but forward progress!

And I’m still having fun playing catch-up!

But, I think it may be a good idea to get this done before my grandson goes to college.

There is always so much to do!

Some people know how to stop and smell the roses…with their whole face!

Anyway, if you would like to see the video of this page spread, head on over to my YouTube channel, Patty’s Art JournalsΒ and take a look!

Until next time,

Thank you so much for stopping by,

See you soon,

Another Page In My “Meadow Green” Art Journal

I’m really enjoying having space to journal in my art journals again. Sometimes I leave the journal spots empty so I have a place to go when the journaling bug bites.

The little card at the right slips into the decorated envelope there. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a veggie garden feel here.

And the fact that I’m using some of my sweet happy mail gifties makes my heart sing!

I made a process video of this page on my YouTube Channel if you’d like to listen to my prattling…I mean commentary, head on over.

I’ve decided to ramp up my video making, so the “Another Video Up!…” title might get a bit redundant, so I’m going to start announcing it within the posts.

Well, I hope you like my little art journal, I have about eight more pages to go!

As always,

Thank you for stopping by,

Talk to you soon,

~Patty
