Art Journal Emporium - Month in Review {January 2015} January 31 2015, 0 Comments

Since the month ended this weekend, I saved my weekly review for a day so I could cover the entire month of the Art Journal Emporium.  It has been a whirlwind month, hasn't it?  There's been so much inspiration flowing, projects to work on, printables and downloadables...Oh my!

What we worked on:

  • The Daily Art Dose - 10 minute daily inspirations for bringing more art into your daily life.

Liz made this one for the word 'instrument.'

And I LOVE this take on 'pretend' from Crystal.

  • The January Book Club - This book has not only been a fantastic read, but a great source of inspiration and motivation for many of the Emporium members.

Kay did this mini-masterpiece in the style of Susan Branch.

This work by Jenny takes one of the beginning challenges of our book club and just knocks it out of the park.

  • The Tangerine Telescope Zine made its debut much to the delight of the collective Emporium.
  • ATC: Words to Live by Project - Such amazing work was done on this idea. Check out our other blog posts for some additional highlights as well.

I really like this simple, but interesting ATC that  Kay made.  It uses Tangie's Melt Into Springs kit.

Marilyn made this recycled ATC with nothing but bits of otherwise trash paper and washi tape! Pretty awesome way to recycle if you ask me.

  • Get Out of that Funk and Back into Art - Sometimes the art just doesn't flow. This add-on artspiration has some useful tips to unblocking your creative flow.

Cathy made this 'unFunked' work of art for her journal.

  • Downloads - The shelves of the Emporium just keep filling up with new goodies to download. We've had collage sheets, a gorgeous little set of digital scatters, a preview page for a new line of templates (how cool is that?!?) and a new set of BeMused cards! 

What a fantastic way to start the year! I can't wait to see what is in store for us next month.

Been inspired by the work you see here? Join the Emporium for February.
