Emily's Weekly Art Journal Challenge

Decided to play along with Emily and her totally fun and creative card/art journal 52 week challenge.

Details here: Art Journey

Here are my week 1 and 2 cards.






Week One: Something we are proud of...





Close up of the micro beads..




Another close up of the beaded heart..





Journaling on the back...





This week's card was about what we find powerful. I chose hope.




Journaling on the back. It's all about my Mom and how I have learned over the last year what hope really means.




Close up of the front of the card. All the buttons are vintage buttons my Mom saved as a child and that were given to her when she married my Dad from my Grandma. The pink shell dove is a jewelery piece I have been saving for ever.

I promised myself I would only use scrap papers on these and use up my stash and force myself to make it "work".

Loved this quick satifaction weekly project. So Fun!
