And from the blog for Life Documented 2017 HERE : Prompt: To incorporate under paper into your page.
Challenge: To add art marks and doodles into your page somehow.
AND HERE : Prompt: Doodle around shapes
Challenge: Cut shapes from paper or print art marks onto stickers
Ironically, this ended up being more work I think! - but by giving myself permission to spread it over time I enjoyed it more ♥ I decided to make a couple of spreads so that I could art journal one and document my busy weeks on the other like I did in Weeks 19-20 last month.

mood journaling spread on Thursday so thought it would be fun to repeat my butterfly mask technique here
HERE if you want to find out more about my celebrations. I was able to journal on an information card from my new tarot deck and attach it as an extra flap detail on the third fold-out page of my spread. We are now celebrating my youngest son's 13th birthday this weekend. You can see why it's been a challenge to fit art in ♥
