Art Journal Page

I'm doing a year long art journal class this year (because God knows I don't have enough to do!) I set up a blog for it but decided to post this page here as I like the message. The prompt was we had to choose a 4 word self help phrase. I am really not a self help kind of person but whatever. My first attempt was super bright and v4ry typically 'art journal-ish' and I hated it. I decided i wanted to convey the peace you have in your life when you don't allow toxic people to be a part of your life.

All the items I used to make the garland are from Raspberry Road Designs, everything else is from Lorie Davison

This is fabulous! I love the message. I hope you'll post more of your entries here too.

Thanks! I'm finding the thing fairly intimidating but so far I'm sticking with it.

Right now I'm enjoying the calendar you made as my desktop background. You are so talented, I can't even.

And the slogan? OMFG, YES!!! I need this so bad right now!!!

When I first read the entry before I clicked on the image I thought you'd do some modern intrepretation; I love this one so much better. The garland on the left looks like I could just pick it off the screen.

Such an important mantra to keep in mind. I remember reading the simple "avoid negative people" years ago and it seems obvious but it really stuck with me, and made me think some about being less negative myself. The leaving toxic people behind has been VERY important to me the last few years. I should carve it in stone literally!

Oh, this is beautiful! And I wanted to say hi and drop you a comment about your wonderful story Adventures. I got it rec-ced by a friend and once I started reading I was totally blown away. I'm in the middle of reading and love it so much :) Many thanks! And I hope you won't mind but I'd like to friend you to be able to keep track of your beautiful art. Rena :)
