i'll admit the project grew more difficult in march and i fell behind, sometimes by a week at a time. i could definitely feel the effects of house- and job-hunting this month. it ended up both good and bad. good in that i had room for more two-page spreads, which i felt gave me greater flexibility on some of the pieces and some of the thinking it helped me do. bad in that i didn't get the daily creative practice that i embarked on this project to have. but april is a another month and i'm back on track. well. almost anyway. but i blame husband because he said yesterday was only the 2nd and it was actually the 3rd.

recurring themes - maps and eyes continue to crop up again and again. i'm beginning to see that come out when i look back at previous months. in any case, it's an interesting project and i'm starting to see a glimmer of where it's taking me.

That is fascinating when you see a trend developing. I like the way you displayed them all like a quilt here.

Your birds, your maps, your tucked away words, your colours, your march was one month of transition. You did beautifully.

Happy Easter from Als.

I'm glad I'm not the only one for whom projects grew more difficult in march. And april is another month for me too, especially when it comes to art journalling this is THE month to do it. Among all the travel journalling that the soujournal will become, I have picked up on some of your themes and I think I have ideas...

I love this. The idea of an art journal appeals to me, and yours is so inspirational. Honestly, I don't know how you find the time to do everything you do. But I'm so glad you do :)

Very inspirational - and a great way to record personal trends and growth. When (IF!) I ever get to move, I may aim to do something similar...
