Are you a journal hoarder? 
Now that's a good question I don't think so but I think if your a hoarder
you are probably in denial. SO ...... you be the judge.
How many do you have and why different ones?
I think I have 9 total and 2 completed, so 7 that I work in depending on 
my mood and medium. The reason I have different ones is because
I work on multiple pages at a time. If you have seen any of my YouTube videos
you know that patience is not a strength of mine. So instead
of sitting around waiting on the paint to dry I move onto another
page often in a another book until that one is complete.

We were challenged to create a journal page that represents you. For me I had to 
use bold colors that I am always pulled towards. I just LOVE bold neon colors, I think it goes hand in hand with my personality. The quote that is written around the circles reads :
"perfect doesn't matter. just be you. dream your dreams, like what you like and stick to your gut feelings. be 100% truly, deeply, uniquely, strangely, passionately you. because you are enough. promise."  - the quiet rabbit

Mail Art

What is Mail Art?

To me it is where the envelope is the artwork. It's more than just slapping a few
pieces of washi tape on the envelope and packing it full
of paper goodness. It's where you treat the envelope like it
were a canvas or art journal page.

 I LOVE making mail
art, I can just imagine the post worker going through their day and up
pops one of my envelopes. I hope that it makes them smile!!
Another reason is I know I love to get pretty envelopes in the mail,
its something about opening your mailbox to a beautiful piece
of art work that has to make you smile!!!

Here are a few of my Mail Art pieces.

Here is a tutorial I did on the Butterfly Mail Art
