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 Journals and take a look!

Until next time,

Thank you so much for stopping by,

See you soon,

Quote Journal Page

The other day, I found this quote card that I had printed up years ago. Not having the energy, or where-with-all, to look for a place to put it, I decided to just plant it where it belonged, in my quote journal.

…and, I figured since one of my goals this year was to make more process videos, I set up my camera. I know! I am also very surprised!

Clearly it was too early in the morning for such goings on, because when I did talk, I was just tongue tied. But, oh well, at least it’s up!

Then there was the ink stamping debacle, I may or may not have reprieved myself, you be the judge.

So, if your interested in seeing me put this page together, head on over to my YouTube Channel, Patty’s Art Journals, and see what you think.

As always,

Thank you for visiting,

Have a great day,

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,

The Last Page in My “Inky” Journal

So, the other day whilst filming my “Memory Journal Tag Page” vid, I figured since I had the camera set up, I might as well film another video.

If you have been following me for a while, this journal will be pretty familiar…oh, the angst!

Well, I’m happy to say that this is the last page of this journal! I’m even happier to say that I have had so much fun working in it, I’m making another one. A couple of people asked me to make a video of the page painting/inking process, so that will be happening soon also.

I had a tough time with my “Quack Grass” piece, but it was one of those things I couldn’t let go of, and I’m super happy it’s finally found a home.

Yes, I get attached to small pieces of paper…but you knew that, right!?

I left a little journaling spot on the last page to jot down a few thoughts. This journal and I have not been fast friends, so a little farewell note is definitely called for.

So, goodbye little journal!

I hope that you will take some time to visit my YouTube Channel and check out my latest video. Please let me know what you think!

Until next time,

Thanks for stopping by,

Have a great week,

“And It’s A Wrap!” a New Video Up!

You know, I think we all have a hard time keeping promises to our selves. I, like many people, enjoy doing things for family and friends, but sometimes I let that get in the way of doing things for myself…and there are only so many minutes in a day!

But, taking the time to start filling my channel with videos, and getting over my camera shyness, is a promise I’m keeping to myself so far!

This is the journaling page in my August Memory Journal. In case your not familiar with my memory keeping process, after I decorate the month’s pages with the photos and ephemera, I write the memory snippets and dates on tags and journaling cards on the last two pages for that month. I’m not sure where this habit came from, but I really enjoy it, so it stuck.

I’m pretty sure I just wanted an excuse to play with my tags! Many paper pads have fun tags and ephemera included, for memory keeping and such, and I’m a total sucker for them!

My goal is to make one video a week. I see people out there making 3 to 4 a week. Where do they find the time!?

Anywho, I hope you will pop over to my YouTube channel, “Patty’s Art Journals”, and watch my little process video on this page spread. It’s about 20 minutes long…I couldn’t make up my mind on color options.

Please let me know what you think. And, if there are any video ideas you would like to see, I would love you to share them with me!

As always,

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a great weekend,

~Patty
