Where I Grew Up (Art Journal Page)
I made this page in response to this prompt on the Creative Therapy blog, "Where did you grow up?" I happened to grow up in a real neighborhood in Southern California - full of children playing outside all the time. Journaling is on the clouds (which are cut from a transparency and adhered with white paint. I like how I used a paper doll on this and some houses made out of plaster.
Speaking of houses . . . I wanted to do a quick check-in on the house party and give out some blog hop information. First, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you signed up to participate and have not received your house supplies. The complete list of sign-ups is here.
Second, it's time to put together our blog hop!!! I'd like the Blog Hop to start on Saturday, May 1, at 10:00 p.m. California time (that makes it sometime Sunday morning, May 2 in the UK). Let me know if you think that's too soon. Otherwise, we'll go with that date. If you have a blog, it is very easy to participate in a blog hop. If you don't have a blog, it is a very easy way to go stop by everyone's blog and check out their houses. I have sent an email with the following information to everyone on my list. If you didn't get the information, please email me, and I'll resend it.
If you want to participate in the blog hop, please email me at email@example.com with your blog name and address. Please put "House party blog hop" in the title, and I'll take it from there. To participate in the blog hop, all you need to do is:
1. Email me with your blog information to let me know that you're "in." Please email me with this information by Thursday, April 28.
2. Complete your house by May 1 at 10:00 p.m. California time.
3. Create a blog post, with a picture of your house, and schedule your post to "live" at the blog hop start time. Please use the title House Party Blog Hop as the title of your post.
4. Put a link in your blog to the next person in the blog hop circle, so that readers can click on the link to go to the next blog. I'll send around a list of who links to who after I hear from everyone.
I know it may sound complicated, but it's really not. Eight of us did a Creative Circle Blog Hop last year, and you can check it out here to get an idea of how it works. Everyone so enjoyed the last blog hop, and it's a great way to get a little more attention to your blog. I hope you decide to play along!
