Making Journals and Sketching

A few handmade journals using old books (I cut out the old pages and add in either watercolor paper or basic sketchbook paper with a basic binding technique) and cover with paper and images. I became addicted to the process and made quite a few at once. I use them for art journals or for keeping notes.

A couple of more recent sketchbook pages too....

 These are some drawings of a couple more of the covered books: one for memory keeping and the other is a one line a day journal.

new year art journaling

I'm having a hard time starting into the new year, I've  been procrastinating a lot and can't quite seem to organize the thoughts and projects in my head, because I do have a lot of things I want to do.

I have been doing a little bit of art journaling, this page is almost finished, it's some journaling about the word that I chose to focus on for the year, which is calm because lately I've been more impatient and irritated so I knew this was the word for this year, it helps me breathe and focus on the present. Did anyone else pick a word for the year?
