Storytelling in Art Journaling

Hello!

My story this week is a focus on special moments that took place during the year.  While the words are not exactly a focus of my page and keeping with this month’s theme, I felt my photos needed to be front and center in telling my story.  I added my photos to Art Pops™ Cards and journaled on the back.  I assembled them by sewing tabs to the top, attaching them to my page in a graduated stacked format so I can lift them and “read” the story on the back of each one.

As this year comes to a close I want to thank all of you for a your support, encouragement and kind words.  So many e-mails arrived in my in box at just the right moment!  I truly appreciate the sweet comments, mail art and all the conversations we’ve had.  Thanks for making this year wonderful and I hope you have been inspired by all the weekly DLP challenges…I know you have inspired me! In case you missed any, I have featured them all later in this post.

While I won’t be participating in DLP 2016, I will be around.  For starters, I will be launching a brand new art journaling course early in the year and a brand new (totally awesome) workshop site where all my workshops will find their new home.  I can’t wait to reveal it soon and there will be a free class to kick things off!

Sending wishes for a happy and blessed New Year!!

Roben-Marie

Hidden Places in Art Journaling

Hello!!

I had an idea for my page this week but it went in a totally different direction and I love when that happens!  There are many ways to "hide" your journaling and for mine I chose to tuck a tag into a pocket.

The pocket is a page torn from an Anthropologie catalog and taped on one side.  I glued a flower element to the bottom to finish off the page and that added the extra security to hold the tag in place.

How will you hide your words this week?

Cheers,

Roben-Marie
