Art Journalling Challenge

It's strange how things happen! I was lucky enough to receive some art journalling books for Christmas as I have been intrigued for a while now & know this is something I definately want to try in the New Year.

I have discovered via Sharon at My Little Pad a fantastic 365 day art journalling calendar challenge over at The Kathryn Wheel. The idea came from Jill at Third Age Musings.

It sounds like a perfect introduction to art journalling & a wonderful keepsake..... Help! I haven't got a clue what I'm doing here & will I have something worthy to note everyday? Must admit to stroking my new books rather than taking it all in. Well I do have some Rabbids to get back home to the moon!!

Any advice would be most wonderfully accepted. Good luck & have fun if you are playing along. Gez.xx


  1. Welcome to the 365 calendar challenge! Delighted to have you on board. It's a great way to get into art journaling and I think you're going to love it :-) Thanks for joining, Kate x

  2. Hi Gez,
    I'm afraid I'm not the one who can give you advice but I will certainly look forward to seeing what you produce. Go for it girl!!

  3. I'm sooooo excited to be joining you Kate. Thank You for adding my name.xx

  4. Woo Hoo Gez!! It is new to me too so we can support each other :-)
    I am looking forward to it.

  5. Thanks for the heads up it does look interesting...but I'm not committing myself!!
    My cold is getting better although I don't think it was wise to have to go into town today! No snow here but then there hardly ever is as the sea air keeps it away pity it does not do the same for colds!! LOL

  6. Just go for it is my advice... I can't wait for it to start and I am really new to art journaling too... Have fun...x

  7. Hi Gez, thank you for leaving such nice comments on my blog they are much appreciated. I am not sure where you live I think in the Sheffield area in which case the Pink Pig book JILL uses you can get from PINDERS and it is the perfect size. Unfortunately the Pink Pig manufacturer is not open again until 4th Jan if you put in an order on the internet they would send it out to you immediately on the 4th or you could collect they are in Emley. Hope all this is useful to you.
    Happy New Year

  8. Happy New Year Gez hope that 2010 bring you love, health and happiness.

    Look forward to see what you create with the 365 journal too.

    Have a fab New Year
    ps im following your blog.hope thats ok

  10. Hi Gez, just like to thank you for deciding to follow me, and thank's for the offer of help too...
    As you can see from my blog my style is pretty basic, though I have alway's admired different types of crafting, I am not so confident with the very Arty stuff myself, though since starting my blog, there is lot's of stuff to help me learn.
    I really enjoyed taking part in Jill's blog hop and found lot's of inspiration, Artyjen was one that stood out for me, not suprising she won stamper of the year....
    Though I would have a long way to go to do work like that, I would like to learn more about that type of craft...

    I have done a little reading on your blog, from what I read I hope your Dad is on the mend, and sorry to hear you lost your Mother not so long back.
    We lost my Husband's Mom last month to Cancer, it was a terrible time and all the more heartbreaking seeing her deteriorate so quickly.
    Though the hospice she was in was wonderful, and made the inevitable more easier for the family, they looked after MIL so well, I never really had an opinion about those sort of places till now, and have to say they opened my eyes to the dignity and care they give.

    I hope 2010 will be a better year for you. And I look forward to seeing more of your lovely work.

    Thank's again for popping by my blog

  11. Hi Gez,
    Just thought I'd pop in and say 'hi' as I'll be taking part in Kate's challenge too! Really looking forward to seeing what everyone does.

    I love your blog by the way. Lovely work.


  12. Nothing wrong with stroking books and getting Rabbids back to the moon!! ;)
    I think Kate's challenge is a great way of getting into journalling. Basically, all you need to do is cover a page with colour, add some texture using stencilling/stamping/doodling/collage then add your words!! In this case, you only have to write your words in a little square so you're away!!
    I think this year adventure is going to be fab :)
