Journal 52, Week 35: Plans

Chelle, our delightful host at Journal 52 gave us Plans for our Week 35 prompt.  I asked myself what future plans I had, and went from there.

As you can see, my future plans are to plan, learn, rework, create, work, and sew.

I began by asking is it too early?

Is it too early to begin thinking about Christmas?

Is it too early to learn to stamp?  I seem to be stamp challenged!

Is it too early to rework my Rocking Horse altered book that fell apart when I dropped it and it tumbled down 14 steps from the landing to the bottom of my basement stairs?

Is it too early to create some mixed media I can give as Christmas gifts?  Note the week number on the dress.

Is it too early to finish my Houses altered book?  This book really needs to be put to bed, because I'm quite bored with it

Is it too early to continue working on my 7 Continents altered book?  This one may never be finished.

Is it too early to sew a few quiltlets to give as gifts?

Is it too early to put it all together in a cohesive plan?  I suspect only time will tell.

Materials I used include various magazine images, colored copier/printer paper, ribbon, misted paper, stamps, pigment ink, various stickers, a computer generated image from my stash, part of a book page, thread, sewing machine, black ink pen, and a paint chip.

Thank you for joining me with my future plans, and thanks for your continued support and thoughtful comments.

Your future plans look nice all lined out on your page, love where you put the week number.

I did check the links you left for me, THANK YOU, and chose to follow a couple of them. I'm really on the newby side of art journaling, so there are a lot of blogs and videos out there I am unaware of....*grin*
I first started with using stamps, then went from there to Tangling to just messing about in a journal. So most of the supplies I already had for one reason or an other, and really try not to buy the newest gadget....thus I do not own a Gelli plate and all my "other" toys are the older models. I do buy dies, stamps and pens.....all three are big weakness of mine....LOL

Wow, you have a lot planned for the coming weeks/months/ years. Love your page with so many details and different hings to see. The stitching is a great touch. Take it slowly, and I am sure you will be able to carry out your plans and ideas! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

Great plans E.! Wonderful pages!

Excellent plans and the main thing, imo, is that they are all doable; none are unrealistic. So, plod away at them at they will all be completed. Except Christmas of course, which comes around every year! Lol. ;) Speaking of Christmas, I'm with Divers and Sundry, 'It is _never_ too early to plan Christmas!' lol Hope you had a good day (I'm a late visitor) :D

You are not only a very good planner but you get so much done E! I know the wisdom of starting early for Christmas but haven't pulled that off in years. Your collage maps out some great things and your stitching pulls it together nicely.
p.s. TAP can only be used with an inkjet printer and you are right about lightening the images. You might want to play with a black n white image to start out with. I want to try that ironed on book text. Have fun!

fab collage art Elizabeth! Ok, so although I don't even want to think about Christmas just because of the association to the winter weather it's never to early to think about Christmas. It's never too late to tackle the things on your list-one at a time. I know you can do it all:)
