The Boyfriend and my 29th anniversary was a month or so ago. This invitation from Mod Memento, was the inspiration for my gift to him.
I decided to write our relationship in this storybook pattern. It's written third person and actually was quite easy to write. We have 29 years, with a lot of history, so it turned into 2 boards. I loved doing it. Here is a copy of it.
I also wanted to try this transfer method so I put the two together. It was a lot of work and wouldn't suggest it for a first timer. But, I do love the result. And he did too. Here it is hung in our home.
Here is a slide show with a few instructions. The play button is in the top left hand corner.

Art Journaling • Week #3 My Voice
Q. How do I describe my voice? How would I never describe my voice as?
Q. How do others describe my voice?
Q. Was there ever a time that I couldn't use my voice?
Q. What can or can't my voice do?
Q. What remedies have you used to soothe your voice?
A. Put your lip prints on the page and write words coming out of them.
A. Stamp one word/phrase 3 - 4 times without re-inking, so that it fades like an echo.
A. Record your voice talking on your smart phone, use watercolor to make the background, painting how you feel listening to your own voice.
A. Use curved lines, starting in one corner, make wave lengths and add text on each line
A. Make left side background darker & the right side lighter, the image fades off like a soft voice
Here are a few art journal pages of others.
They aren't about voices, per se, but can be influential in your image making.
I also post this info and more about art journaling over here.On Friday morning, upload a photo of your celebrate me • art journal page on Shannon's Studio Facebook page
Saw this website, Closet Visit, (via DesignMom.com) this morning and took a quick look-see. It's about seeing the clothing closets of the fashionably put-together. After looking at a few I noticed something. I noticed the art.
Of course it was the art.
This isn't a site about art, just celebrating style. But, in showing off the unique dressing choices of the women
you catch a glimpse of their art choices. Oriental hangings, mobiles, handkerchiefs, skeletal prints, and paintings. Interestingly, most of these women had art, fine art, in their surroundings.
Even though this wasn't about photographing their personal artistic galleries it still came through.
The spirit of our the soul
