my new 365

After much thought about whether or not to commit to a 365 project again this year, I've decided YES - the benefits to me are well worth the effort.  Having that mental commitment keeps me on track and moving forward with my artistic endeavors.  The question then became how I would structure my own personal challenge.

Although I absolutely enjoyed focusing on collages last year, I did feel like other artistic explorations suffered cuz I just didn't have the time.  So this year my goal is:  art every day.  Every. Day.  I want to continue my growth in collages but widen my scope to return to working in my art journal, bookmaking, ALAW, painting, mail art, etc.

So, I'm excited about this broader goal and here's a little of what I've done so far the first couple weeks of the year:
A start on my last Round Robin journal page:

Round robin journal work - collage, inktense pencils and watercolor houses.....

I have a moleskin journal that I want to get back to.....this week is all about football playoffs and the Seahawks won!  woohoo!

I spent some time adding a few tuck-ins and putting washi tape here and there so I'm not looking at a bunch of blank pages.

I have a number of pages in my art journal where I cleaned off my brayer.  Here I'm toying with the idea that ended up in the round robin journal.

I made some mail art:

And I did a bunch of pages in my restraint journal.... (still love working in this - it's my second one and almost full of inspiration and simple collage/compositions):

I wonder what this new week will bring???


  1. Great idea for your 365! Mine is somewhat similar. Love all the art you created! The restraint journal is such a good idea - love the simplicity of the collages there.

  2. art every day is a wonderful commitment to yourself. lucky us, we get to see all your results!

  3. You rock Terrie!!!! Wonderful commitment...good luck.

  4. Happy New Year Terrie. I love your houses but the last to pages are my favourites. I love the simplicity of them.

  5. I love that art journal landscape/flower drawing and think I'll use it as a starting point for a spread of my own. Also like the row of houses and the card with two leaves.

  6. Ooooh, I love this Terrie! You're already off to a fantastic start! xx
