First of all – since this is my first Blogpost of the new Year 2015 – I’m wishing you all a happy & healthy New Year 2015 – may it hold many positive & fantastic things in store for each and everyone of you!

So – new Year – new Goals – new Habits – new Challenges … right? This year there are NO new years resolutions – just a couple of “Goals” I would love to work towards (and maybe reach?) – just some Challenges I’d like to take and some Changes I’d like to make …! One little Change I’d like to make artwise is: doing more personal Artjournaling again … while creating not thinking about Teaching or Classes etc. – just some PLAYTIME in my Artjournal, trying new things – developing new Styles – having fun … 🙂 (and don’t get me wrong on this – I just LOVE to teach and to come up with Class Ideas etc. – but I think personal playtime & arttime is just as important and I’d love to allow myself to create more “for fun” in 2015!

So I started this cute little A5 sized Artjournal (just folded & sewed together some A4 sized Sheets of Watercolor Paper) and I’d love to create some Pages in it inspired by the Documented Life Project’s Challenges or other Challenges that inspire me. I’ve decorated the Cover already and love how it turned out …

So yesterday I already started to fill the first Double-Spread with a Mixed Media Page inspired by
a) Challenge No. 1 of the Documented Life Project
b) my One Little Word 2015

After everything that happened over the last couple of days of the Year 2014 I really thought about changing my Word 2015 – but then in the end I found that it’s still a perfect fit – maybe even more now … so as I mentioned in my last Newsletter Video – my OLW 2015 is going to be EMBRACE … Embrace Life with all its little flaws, with all its ups & downs … Embrace the imperfect – embrace everything that’s coming my way and trying to love it and to make the best out of everything that’ll come my way … so yeah … EMBRACE it’s gonna be … my word to live by & to inspire me throughout the year 2015.

This Artjournal Page contains my OLW 2015 plus my Goals for the Year and I really had fun creating this Spread … hope you’ll enjoy watching the Video of the Page come together …
