I'm not sharing my desk today but one of my newest Junk Journal spreads.
At the beginning of the year, you hear/read all about people selecting a word to guide their year whether it's a goal or mantra or muse or whatever. I’ve never really given that a thought before since I'm usually all over the place. But with my goal this year to send at least one handmade card a week, I decided to select a word...CONNECT.
When playing in my Junk Journal this weekend and some inspiration from my daughter, I made this page:
A close up:
I adhered these KENO slips (yes, I keep everything) to the page before adding teal, blue, and fuchsia acrylic paint to cover the page.
Then I used multiple paint pens to write the word “connect” all over. Once I was happy with the coverage, I embellished some of the words with dots, lines, shadows, etc. It’s such a fun page!
What about you? Do you pick a work for your year? If you do, let me know in the comments.
