Goal Book ~ So It Begins...
I've had this sketch book for a while and have been stain pages and trying to use different inks for junk journaling and art journaling for a while but didn't really have a purpose...now I do. You can see the edges are starting to change because of the inks and dyes and I think that is completely fine. I want it to be pretty funky. The outside is fabric so it's soaking up the liquid pretty well.
I receive daily emails from DailyOm.com and last week they sent me this quote and it pushed me over the edge to finally start this project.
"Take the time to reclaim your creativity and watch your life blossom as a result."
So this is my very first page...my first week! What do you think? Yes...I think the penmanship is a little rushed but I'm ok with that for the first one. I am looking forward to seeing things change each week. I found a small photo and the width of it was perfect and decided to use it at the bottom of the page. Plus the colors match up with what I already had on the page. I used mostly alcohol inks and Tattered Angels spray for this page background. I used a glue stick in certain spots and used a very fine clear glitter to accent it. I scribbled a hand drawn line boarder around the page, too. And finally jotted down 5 goals I would like to focus on this week. Some people say if you hand write your goals you are a more apt to do them VS typing them or saying them. I want to write at least 5 articles (or Uplifters) for The Raw Food World News site this week. I sort of slacked during the month of September. I want to make at least 1 veganized World Food dish this week. Eventho I started this Goal Book this week I still want to start a Vision Board, too! So I added that one to the list. I want to at least start it. Then I want to Breathe more and Smile more this week!
