A House is just a House....


till you add a cut out paper family of wonky proportions and stick them in a pocket. Then it's a Soul Journal page.


Wanna' see my messy work area?

Of course you do! It will help you justify your own mess.

This is the first spread of the Day 16 challenge. I loved doing this! Random steps are so much fun! No pressure to come up with the perfect idea, just throw all the prompts in a hat and pick one out and go to town. And end up with something like this.
Don't like it?
Well, it's not my fault, I was at the mercy of the luck of the draw. See, that's what I like!

I hope you're having fun playing, and if you're wanting another challenge while Sarah's away, see the previous post.

Ohhh! I love this spread Arlene. I can tell you had a blast re-creating your family in paper. Who would have known we'd have so much fun with scary ART Journaling stuff? Why did we wait so long eh? LOL

Loving your journal...What a great looking family too!!Gosh I wish my work area was as tidy as yours...I think I have gremlins....

Gremlins...I knew there was a reason it keeps getting messier and messier even as I sleep! That's probably who caused my rhecent washing machine problem...tey want me out of the way so they can make more of a mess!

Hey Dawn. I HAVE been doing art journaling over the last couple years...just not this intense..and no direction. And Ya, I love it!

Precious family page. My desk is messier, believe it or not. It has spread to the entire room! Fortunately, I can close the door. I need a sign that reads, "WARNING: Artist Zone."

So I don't win the messy desk contest? Even if my mess is less than a week old? Man, I thought I was doing pretty good for having it look like that in such a short time period!
LOL

Hahaha.. seeing your workspace DOES make me feel a little more justified in my mess! Now, if only I could contain my mess to a table and not the whole room!

I love your house and your paper family! Haven't gotten to day 16's instructions yet, but I like your sneak preview! Thank you for sharing!
