This month was a busy one. We had a lot of gatherings with friends and family. So not much time for anything else, like art journaling. But at least I tried something new, a new art journal format: a little Moleskine cahier in A6 format. It’s perfect to use up your paper scraps and the letters are looking really big on the pages. The only thing, that bothers me, is the thin paper. If I write on one page, you can see it on the other side. So not beautiful. But maybe I have to find a new way to work with this kind of paper. How do you work with too thin paper?

This is the February prompt from Get Messy: “What is the one thing you most want your children (real or imaginary) to know about love?”. I found it hard to decide, which ‘fact’ is most important, so I wrote everything down. But it was very interesting to think about, what I would tell my future children or a good friend, who is still looking for love and struggeling. As a background I used the negative surroundings from an alphabet sticker sheet. Not sure, how it’s called. Especially with the different colors it looks so fun.

I found this little phrase “create beautiful emotions” on a paper bag from the craft shop and I knew instantly that it had to be put in a special place, so I’ll never forget it. It’s so beautifully written. Then I started this new little art journal and found this golden, shiny page I fall in love with. They were perfect for each other and therefore they are now on my cover page of my art journal.
