Grateful Journal

My friend Sarah gave me a beautiful journal for my birthday and I thought it would be fun to turn it into a 'Grateful' journal.  I'm going to try and do something every day in it for the whole of November to coincide with Art Every Day Month and also The Heart of Gratitude Journey  which is for two weeks. 

Having a grateful heart is so important, no - more than that - its necessary!   It helps make us positive people, who will always see the best in everything and everyone and won't let us take things for granted.  Dominic (my husband) and I have a cup of tea (made by him :) ) every morning before we get up and have a chat and a pray and we start off by giving thanks to our amazing God for the good things that happened the previous day, or just for whatever we can think of.  It gets the day off to a great start!

Here is the title page for my Grateful journal:

I used autumn colours again, can't seem to stop using them!  I love them and its also the theme for the month at Art Journal Journey.  I started off by splodging paint and spreading with a baby wipe then stencilling.

I remembered I had a thank you stamp which seems perfect for this journal so its going to appear in lots more pages!

I stamped some more and stamped the title which I wanted with the bright yellow in the backround:

This is going to be fun!
