The blending here is amazing!!!  And look at all those little hand torn letters.  LOVE IT!!


‘Time’ week 2 by candyK
Great layering here and I like how the quote is tucked up in the corner.  I must remember that this is an option…


Love Life by WyldCat
Isn’t that art doll adorable?  I like the word strips, those are very well done.


A Grand Thing by firecracker55

Highlights of Week 52

The final week of the 2012 Art Journal Caravan has come and gone.  It’s quite bittersweet.  It has been such an amazing year, so many fun discoveries, yet so many lie ahead in the New Year.  I’m excited to continue my journey but sad to see this part of it behind me.  As usual, I have some great pages to show you, but first, I must apologize for running behind, yesterday I was on special assignment for Tangie.  That’s right, she had me working on something very special for the 2013 Caravaners.  I’ve got to tell you, this little project taught me a LOT!  I hope you’re going to be on this fun journey with me in 2013 and can’t wait to hear what you think when you see what I made : )  And onward…


week 51- Tintinnabulation by thimbleberrie
I thought the artist did an incredible job of expressing her discomfort here.


Adventure Quest December by Nevermore
I thought this was really pretty.  LOVE the pop of the red string.


52 words by wanderer
I think… all 52 words of 2012 are here?  WOW!


The Journey’s End by Billizetti
Very cool poem Bill.


Tintinnabulation by sbpoet
All those beautiful bells!  Aren’t they gorgeous?


Thanks for joining me for another week of highlights.  Don’t forget to check in next Sunday for more great inspiration.  Until then… I’ll see ya on the trail.
