Tracking the Vision – Keep an Art Journal

30-Day Vision Board Part II

Tracking the Vision

Tracking the Vision

Those of us engaged in a 30-Day “Be Here Now” discussion quickly became aware of a certain fact of life – if it only lives as a good idea – it will only have the effect of a good idea.

You can have all the good intentions in the world and not have the time or motivation to take action on your 30-Day Vision. This might be why we usually do a board for the entire year – it gives us time to ‘get around to it.’

So we all made tracking charts and since I am keeping my Vision Board in my art journal I decided to put my chart there too.

Imaginary Animals Cover - Shipping Now!

I  guess that heading dates me…but I am so excited that Carla’s new book is now shipping!

Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals, A Mixed-Media Workshop with Carla Sonheim, is Carla’s newest book.  If you love Carla’s work as much as I do click on the link above to purchase immediately.

There was some confusion about when the book would actually be ready – of course that kind of confusion is normal when you have  TWO BOOKS  scheduled for release within a month of each other! So this book is shipping about 10 days earlier than expected and I cannot wait to get it in my hands!

30 Day Vision Board – Be Here Now – Keep an Art Journal

30 day Vision

View 1 30-Day Vision Board #1

A group of women and I got together to try out different ways  for making the next month, week, day and moment-to-moment be the life we want to live – NOW.

Every year I take the time to make a collage of how I want the next year to turn out. But what if it could be narrowed down so that the collage had me looking at what I want in my day-to-day living, in order to have the results at the end of the year? AND to be living in those results now.

I  added two pictures because I had such difficulty photographing this spread and each part is important.

21 Secrets #2 – Keep an Art Journal

Written by on September 15, 2012 in Art Journaling, Classes, keepanartjournal, Mixed media with 4 Comments

Aack! Sometimes when I take a class – it isn’t pretty.  Well DUH – Why else would I need a class? Yeah but –  really – I don’t want to scare anyone away with ugly pictures! I did a couple of the 21 Secrets classes before the nice weather set in – and then didn’t do any all summer. I figured out if I got to it and did a class a week I would be able to do all 21 classes by the end of the year, which will also be the end of the class!

The class I took on was Christine Mason Miller’s Word Play. Wow! I thought it would be easy, but I struggled – sheesh. Christine presents various ways to use words or text as art elements. I of course put them right in my Altered Ledger Journal – and hated the outcomes…

Winter: "the season we love to hate and hate to admit that we love."

If you have been paying attention, you know that every week we post a couple of journal prompts for the Art Camp for Women Journal Project.

We have a number of people that contact us to let us know that they are using the prompts even though they are not “officially” in the project.

Susanna Suchak is one of these  satellite Journal Project People!

She sent us this report from her efforts in response to the prompts for week 37:

This was a real challenge … that is picking two colours that I don’t believe “go together.”
