First of all-since this is my first Blogpost of the new Year 2015-I am 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 would like to take and some Changes I would like to make . . .! One little Change I would 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 do not 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 would 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 would love to create some Pages in it inspired by the Documented Life Project’s Challenges or other Challenges that inspire me. I have 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 is 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 is 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 will enjoy watching the Video of the Page come together . . .

    my word is JOY. My dad passed away in October from cancer. I was his caregiver for 4 years. The last 2 weeks of his life the cancer was affecting his brain. It was hard. It was sad. I’m ready for happiness and I’m focusing on joy this year.ReplyCancel
