Awesome Albums with Graphic 45

We are loving the albums today by Keri Sallee and Ginny Nemchak! It will inspired you to create an album, and even dare yourself artistically with new goals for your crafting and art! What a fun Friday on the blog. 

First, we have this incredible Art Dare album by Keri using Time to Flourish!

"It’s a new year and with a new year, comes a chance to start over and try new things.

For my “Time to Flourish” project, I wanted to create a project that is not only useful, but will keep you motivated all year long, so I created the “Art Dare” book.

Inside my G45 Book box, I’ve made 12 mini sketchbooks, each covered with one of the monthly flourish papers, and labeled with the coordinating month. They are stitched together using nylon string and a pamphlet stitch.

There are only 3 rules for the “Art Dare”:

  1. Every week, try something new. New technique, product or style.

  2. Make Mistakes! And don’t have fear of doing so!

  3. Don’t give up on You. You and your art are worth it.

The back has the perfect saying…”Friend...It’s your ‘Time to Flourish.’”

Now...there is no excuses for documenting something new each month. By December, 2015, you will have your own personal artistic time capsule." ~Keri
