If you are looking to add one new activity to your life in 2015, my suggestion would be to make it art journalling. Back in >> this post << it was mentioned how art journals invite you to get messy, leave rules behind, and just play. Art journals allow you to focus more on the making part of the project, rather than the end presentation of the project, which usually results in a more emotional connection to the art.
In today's post, we have a collection of art journal pages created my Design Team member Olya Schmidt. With CHA taking place this weekend, Olya created these to possibly display in the mambi booth. I can't wait to see if they made it to Anaheim!

Olya created pages with a mix of watercolor, photos, and the mambiSHEETS and mambiSTICKS you see below. Those jumbo mambiSTICKS are perfect for whole-page titles, and I love how Olya clustered the small mambiSTICKS together on other pages. Each page/spread is unique, but sticks to the same set of criteria (bright colors, painted base, pops of black&white) to give the whole set a cohesive feel.
Just as Olya did, we invite you to play with product in an art journal. Learn how paint moves on the page in an art journal. Practice pairing a bold black & white mambiSHEET with a range of different colors. Try sticking mambiSTICKS in a pattern... PLAY. LEARN. PRACTICE. TRY. All wonderful words of the art journal. ;)
