Although I live in a area of mild climate, I am still struck with a bit of spring fever, how about you? Much like the feeling we get at the first of the year, the spring is also a time of fresh starts, artistically, a bit of reflecting, spring cleaning (our homes and often times, ourselves). When my friend Keely, asked me if I wanted to take part in TheResetGirl's listersgottalist challenge, I jumped! One, it is fun to do these kinds of artsy exercises with a friend, and two, I always find, self reflection to be so good for the soul. So starting on April 1st, I started my journey. Each day is a different prompt, some cute and fun, and some take a little thought-but still SUPER FUN!!! There is a cool sharing component on Instagram, that adds another level of delight to the challenge. Each person creates their own way to record their lists, then record them photographically and post them to the #listersgottalist Instagram. Each one is unique and fabulous! You can be as creative or simple as you choose. We are only 7 days in and already it is SO MUCH FUN!!!!
So here is my Listersgottalist album
I dug out a tall thin chipboard album from my stash-I thought it was perfect for my artsy version of listing! Next, I am LOVE with American Crafts Rise and Shine collection my Amy Tangerine, so I pulled that out too! Once I settled in with my album, patterned papers, embellishments, punches, and my favorite art inducing Spodify playlist-the creating was pure bliss!
For my cover, I knew I wanted to include the hashtag#listersgottalist and, April 2015 and of course, lots of creative textures and layers. I included a little artsy treasure from my gifted friend, Keely! (altered hole reinforcers!)
The first prompt was reasons why I love being a planner girl. I chose to change it to why I love being a maker (felt more me)
The next prompt was favorite songs of all time-SUPER HARD to narrow it down! I did leave myself a couple of spots, just in case, I remember one that I just have to write down!
I will continue to share my artsy lists throughout the month-If you would like to join in, it's not too late. Simply visit The Reset Girl and sign up! The challenges are fun and the sharing is even better! Let me know if you are taking part! I'd love to see your creations and lists!!!
