Reflections of....

Our Prompt today is Reflection of the way life used to be. Journal a GOOD memory from your past that you want to make sure that you NEVER forget.

Drum Roll Please

Introducing our Guest Art Journal Designer for the month of July.She is a super talented, creative and friendly gal and I know you are going to love her as much as I do. I have asked Sarah to prepare five prompts for this month (one for each Friday) and to submit a bio. I will included some of my favorite art that she has done on Saturday!

Sarah was last months guest designer on Gutter Girlz and I am thins month designer..which just goes to show you what a small world this big Internet is!


My name is Sarah Elliott and I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

I’m mom to 4 boyz ages 12 down to 5 years old. Yes I’m busy, yes I’m tired… and don’t ask how ‘clean’ my house is. lol.

I’m getting married in September so life is even busier, but oh so fun! I often refer to myself as having ADAD (Attention Deficit Art Disorder) as you can see on my blog I’m always up to something Art-sy.

I call myself a Mixed Media Artist because if I can find some way to craft it; I will…

I’m always Re-Using, Re-ducing & Re-decorating.

I’ve been creative my whole life, don’t think I could put a ‘date’ on when I started making Art, if my Mum’s right it’d be on the wall about the same time she gave my solid foods. I’m also a Summer lover ‘cause I get to play in the garden and I read lots & lots & lots… usually have 3-4 books on the go at any given time.

I chose 2010 as my year to ‘CREATE’ and so I’ve been dipping my toes into some new-to-me creative ponds. Art Journaling is ALL new to me in 2010.

I ran across Your Life Spelled Out at the beginning of the year through ~Artist 365~ on FaceBook. I was just starting to dip my toes into Art Journaling... now I'm pretty much soaked! lol

I use both the Art Journal Prompts, which I share publicly AND the Daily Journal Prompts, which I write and keep to myself.

I’m also busy as a Regular Design Team Member over at ARTastic Challenge Blog and this Month’s Guest Designer on From Screen 2 Scrap (FS2S) and last months .Gutter Girlz On FaceBook’s ~Artist 365~ I’m also responsible for the monthly Scrapbook Challenge.


Something Old…

Art Journal about a positive something from your past. An experience that has made you happy, an event that formed who you are… anything ‘OLD’ and good.

Have an AMAZING Friday and if you are starting your 4th of July celebration now, be careful and have a fun!

Sending Love,


  1. I am going to use a photo of my GreatAunt's ring that she gave me for the basis of my art prompt. She would be 104 if she was still alive. She lived on a 100 acre farm until she was 97 by her self. I just want to be a strong woman just like her!

  2. Thanks! I'm truly honored... and really looking forward to what people are going to make with the prompts! :O)

  3. Congrats Sarah! and great Art Journal Prompt...
