ART Journaling the Memory Tree

Christmas Art Journal Mixed Media

Art Journal n. An art diary, art journal or visual journal is a daily journal kept by artists, often containing both words and sketches, and occasionally including Mixed media elements such as collages.

Some could argue scrapbooking and art journaling are the same thing. I’d agree!
So I take Art Journaling to be a more artsy form of scrapbooking that allows for more creative expression and exploration.

This month I invite you to join me for a Christmas-themed Art Journal Challenge.

While decorating our Christmas tree this year I was thinking about how it’s more of a Memory Tree than a Christmas tree in our house. There’s a hodge podge of ornaments randing for the handmade to the beautifully delicate glass ornaments. They are ornaments that my daughter made, ornaments made by and given to us by friends, ornaments marking milestones and treasures from travels we’ve gone on. Each time we decorate we touch those memories again and share the stories together. It’s a reminder of the good life we’ve had and share together as a family. See page details.

    You are so right! After 25+ years, our tree has a lot of wonderful ornaments with little stories attached to them. Thanks for the inspiration to document at least a few of them!
