Journal on Monday: week 99

Hi sweet JoMers!
Another week, another Journal on Monday, another challenge to get my thoughts on the page... I explain it all in the video. Enjoy! :))) And... next week, on Monday August 4th for the start of the big 100th JoM celebration! All the details at the end of this blog post (for the last time! Squeal!!)!

Coucou les doux JoMeurs!
Une autre semaine, un autre Joural on Monday, un autre challenge pour mettre mes pensées sur papier... Comme je l'explique dans la vidéo: pas facile de garder la route lorsqu'il y a beaucoup de facteurs pertubateurs ;))) Bon visionnage! Et... la semaine prochaine, le lundi 4 août pour être précise, c'est le début des célébrations pour le JoM 100ième épisode! Tous les détails à la fin de ce message (pour la dernière fois! Ouiiiiiiii!!)!

The video.   La vidéo.

The 100th Journal on Monday celebration will start on August 4th and go on for a whole week. Like I mentioned before, I'm counting on you all to share an art journaling process. Remember it's not about making an impression if that's holding you back, it's about sharing. And all those sharing will be in for the prizes! You still have a week to get your spread ready, get cracking!!

La célébration du 100ième Journal on Monday démarrera le 4 août et durera toute une semaine. Comme je l'ai déjà dit, je compte sur vous tous pour partager votre processus. N'oubliez pas qu'il n'est pas question de faire impression, si c'est ce qui vous retient, mais bien de partage. Et tous ceux qui partagent entre en course pour les tirages au sort! Vous avez encore une semaine pour préparer votre page, au boulot!!

  9. Your sentiment made me laugh, France, but I also realize the special significance of it after watching your video! I also really appreciate that your shared your struggles with interruptions that caused you to become derailed during the process of creating this particular journal spread. In the end, you have created a masterpiece in my book! Mwah!

  10. So beautiful, love the depth! I was just hanging with a dragonfly in my back yard yesterday.

  11. That piece is absolutely stunning. I'm going to do this same technique on a BIG canvas, thanks much for the inspiration. I had not thought to use Baby Wipes to lift acrylic paint - excellent tip!

  12. Loved the colors, the dragonflies, the way that you make it look like it's a late summer evening, the sentiment is just perfect on it! Thanks for the inspiration France!

  13. Wow, gorgeous page, I love the dragonflies/

  14. Fantastic video - my daughter (7) and I both loved it! What a wonderful idea to use those die cuts as texture and I love the way you showed how to water down and blend the acrylic paint and then using the baby wipe to wipe it off again. Thank you so much!

  15. Wow, les pages sont magnifiques!!


  16. Superbe, j'adore les couleurs et j'aime les libellules!

  17. France, this is very beautiful! I Love your blog. Thank you for your the lessons!

  18. Please can you tell me what the tool is that you used on the edges of your quote and what it is for? I can't see it listed in the ingredients. Many thanks!!


Merci pour vos petits mots qui sont pour moi de vrais encouragements! :)
Thanks for your kind words, they're a real encouragement to me! :)
