Favorite Things

Hi everyone.  This is Erika from BioArtGal. Welcome to 2021. Happy New Year to you!

I think many of us can say that we are glad 2020 is in the books.  It is time to look forward to  many good things, including , hopefully,  a year where we  can get past the  major pandemic issues.

It is also time for a new challenge at Art Journal Journey. I chose Favorite Things as my theme this month.  Starting the new year on a positive note is a good way to begin, don't you agree? Have some fun and make some art about your favorite things. It might be a page about something you love, or perhaps you will use a favorite supply to make your page. Maybe you will just include a favored item within a page. This theme is really open to your personal interpretation. 

 Let's start this year in art with some positive energy.


One of my favorite pastimes is walking, and it seemed an appropriate way to enter the new year. As I hope 2021 will be a good one, I have included a rainbow,  a butterfly and flowers. They may be overused  as symbols, but they  are things that make many of us happy and  give us hope.

I am curious about your favorite things, and I look forward to seeing your journal pages.

Don't forget Art Journal Journey's rules also.  Both hand made and digital journaling is acceptable, but  cards, tags and other items such as 3 dimensional sculptural projects are not accepted.

    1. Thank YOU for the return visit. This is my challenge blog, not my personal blog, but I certainly appreciate you taking time to stop by. BTW, in case you weren't aware, the art work shown here is by Erika, our host this month, not me.

    3. You can find Bleubeard and me at https://alteredbooklover.blogspot.com/ Thanks for asking. Everyone is welcome to visit and I hope to see you there, too. Sorry I didn't get back sooner, but I've been without electricity for most of the 1st because we got slammed with ice and snow.
