I’ve been wanting to start an art journal for several months now and the beginning of January just seemed the perfect time to do so! My first journal page is a visual interpretation of my New Year’s Resolutions:
By starting this journal I already fulfilled resolution n° 1, which was starting a journal (the hardest part, of course, is keeping up with it), but at the same time I disgracefully broke resolution n° 3, which is trying to get more sleep… I’ve also already made preparations for resolutions 2, 4 and 5.
I’d like to enter these journal pages to a couple of challenges:
As this journal page contains one of my newest stamps by Stampotique, I’d like to enter it to the Simon Says Stamp and Showyour Newest stamp challenge and the Drunken Stampers for this week’s theme “New”. I didn’t only use a new stamp, I also stamped on a completely new medium, so these pages are my entry for Rainbow Lady’s “It’s all new to me”.
I also think they perfectly fit the Nightmarish New Year challenge @ Macabre Monday, for Stampotique’s Weasel is a bit of a creepy guy and he obviously doesn’t seem to believe I’m going to succeed in living up to my promises…
So let’s hope I will manage to stick to my New Year’s resolutions this time. Fortunately, I (deliberately) forgot to mention “Stop buying rubber stamps”!
