Recent Art Journaling Pages

This is the cover of another altered book journal. I made it this weekend after finding the book in a used book store. It's 7x7, which is a new size for me. 

I've actually been working on this spread for quite a while now. Every once in a while I add something to it. I'm not even sure it's done yet! Art journaling has become yet one more way I connect with God.

I have been so busy this past week with a leadership conference at our church and haven't had much time for art or for posting anything I did the previous week. Last week, while off work, I played with making some collage journal page backgrounds. It was fun to layer strips of paper that I would normally just throw away. I'm not sure what kind of art this would be called...kind of abstract. But I enjoyed playing with it and I like the results of the backgrounds.

I love this quote by Soren Kierkegaard!
This is still in the background stage.

No scraps will go un-used with this type of collage!

I'm off work this week and looking forward to some relaxation, restoration, and some time to play with art!

I completed another round of "30 Days of Lists" in March. It's a fun way to make an art journal. Some of my pages:
