Gratitude Journal

I had this long and narrow art journal, not my favorite shape, and didn't know what to do with it. It's the shape for lists, I thought. And since I had been listing 5 things a day for which I was grateful, I decided to make this a visual gratitude journal.


  1. What bright and shining pages these are! Colette you continually inspire. Love these journals! So much goodness and light.

  2. I love gratitude journals! we should post a few each week on our blogs in some artistic way! Colette - I am never going to have anytime to do housework if you keep inspiring me like this xox
    ps - what glue do you use? When I paste stuff the book curls up like a vintage scroll!
    ooh, I love your gratitude journal!

  3. What a beautiful idea Colette to use this journal in this way!
    Your beautiful soul emanates from each page.
    Sending you the biggest Dotee hug I can muster!

    I love you

  4. Oh be still my beating heart! Colette,your artwork speaks to me! you are so talented,I am having a go at making some collage cards myself,but I clearly do not have your gift!

  5. Colette, I echo your sentiments - thanks for "flamenco, Andalucia and movies; for winged mesengers and amazing connections and dreams that show us the way." Your creative imaginings are a constant source of inspiration to us all! Merci beaucoup!

  6. This gratitude journal is beautiful!

  7. I really like your calligraphy on these pages... pretty handwriting. Is this sumi ink?

  8. Thanks Melanie.

    I just used a regular paintbrush and black acrylic paint.

  9. Beautiful and heartfelt journal pages! I can't believe i've been missing your art posts all this time since I didn't know you had a blog other than lj!
    Well now I know where you are....... :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
