Art Journal Page - Brighten Your Spirits, Creating Journals and Craft Room Overhaul

Hello creative friends.  Hope everyone is having a great week.  Mine is going well.  This week I have a lot to share.  First is an art journal page that I was originally creating for the Creative Collaboration groups #LoveSpringArt event, but was unable to get it completed and the video ready to upload in time for the event.  Anyhow, this journal page I created using strips and pieces of pattern paper, gel pens and colored pencils.  Here are pictures of the journal page I created.

And here is the video showing how this journal page was created.

Next, I went to my mom's house this past weekend and we all made journals.  My mom, sister, granddaughter and niece were there and I showed them how to make their own journals.  We had a lot of fun creating these journals.  Here are pictures of the journals we created.

My Granddaughter's Journal
Not sure why my granddaughter made a wedding journal, because she is 13 and we don't know anyone who is getting married, but that is what she wanted to make and it turned out really cute.
Finally, for my upcoming birthday my wonderful husband put up shelves in my craft room so that I would have more room and be able to get more organized.  Here are pics of the before and after.

I had a lot of fun making the art journal page and making journals with my family.  And I am so excited about my craft room overhaul and can't wait to start creating in it.  It is so much more organized and inspirational.  I have so much room now to work.  Before it was so dark, cluttered and not very inspiring.  Thank you for stopping by.  Until next time, Happy Creating.
