Art Jouranl Link Party & Gratitude Layout


Hi blog friends!  I was browsing around blog land recently looking at art journals and came across a group that had been assigned Gratitude for that day's art journal layout.  After walking away from the computer "gratitude" just wouldn't leave my mind.  I kept thinking about all the things I'm thankful for and a layout started forming in my mind. 

The top things on my list I'm thankful for are God & family so that was my inspiration.  I used digital images from A Day For Daisies, my Microsoft Publisher program, Copic markers and let myself go.  I love the way my Gratitude layout turned out!

I hope you are inspired and will join my Art Journal link party.  Maybe you'd like to do a page or layout about gratitude, if not it's okay to share what ever you'd like in your art journal.


I will have our first featured Art Journal page/layout tomorrow!
