New Pages

While on this Art Journal Caravan that I've mentioned many times before, we have an monthly assignment, of sorts. This month to illustrate 4 word phrases based on Patti Digh's book, 4 Word Self Help (love Patti's stuff). Here are a couple I've completed.

Fight for Your Dream
My next project is to create an altered board book with some of my favorite 4 word phrases - with actual materials, not digital. I stopped in my favorite used book store and picked up a little board book for this purpose - My First Word Book - a favorite of my Ana's when she was a baby. In fact, her's was so loved, it's in pieces in a zip lock in her keepsakes. I couldn't think of a better book to alter, and I think today is a great day to start working on it. Hopefully, I'll get around to sharing my progress on that when the month's over.

Anyone have a 4 word (inspirational) phrase to share?


  1. I love these! There is a lot of power in just four words.

  2. YOU ARE MY HERO! No, seriously . . . YOU are MY hero!!!!! So glad to know you!
