Monday Inspiration: 30 Days of Lists

I love lists! On average I would say I make at least 3-5 times a day. I find the creation of a list helps to calm my mind, helps me to prioritize and simply makes me happy.

If you love lists you should check out http://30daysoflists.blogspot.com/. I found their site a few weeks ago and just had to sign up for their September program! The concept is 30 list prompts that are completed one day at a time. At the end of the 30 days you will have a wonderful snapshot of your life and opinions at the time of creation.

To get ready for the September 1st start date I have been working on assembling the book that will hold my lists. I decided to use a kolo album I purchased several years ago in South Carolina (Hobby Lobby, yay!). I am so happy to finally put the album to use *grin*.


To complete the inside papers I used spray mists by October Afternoon, Studio Calico and Tattered Angels with masks and American Craft Thickers. For the writing and details I used black India ink and a paint brush. I am looking forward to adding a lot more detail as the month goes on. I have to say that I am really impressed at the quality of the kolo pages. Even with the large (ok enormous!) amount of mists I used their was no bleed through to other pages and very little curling of the paper. I would definitely recommend for your own art journal, mixed media or scrapbook.


Are you thinking of joining 30 Days of Lists? Or are you already participating? Be sure to look me up on the private list forum on the 30 Days of Lists web-site.
