I wasn't sure if there has been a challenge like this before, so I decided to go ahead and just create one!

- Do you like to Smash?

- Are you obsessed & addicted to Art Journaling?

- Own a Smash book? Or how about 4? or more?

Challenge Guidelines:

1. Just for fun share with us what type of Smash book you currently own. (If it happens to be one by K & Company what color or style do you have? i.e. Mod, Retro, Cutesy, 365, etc.)

If not K&Company, what type of book do you have or would you like to create? i.e. Composition book? DIY journal or mini binder? etc, etc!

2. How many books/journals have you already completed or will this be your very first one?

3. [Optional/Challenge Twist!] - Pick a special theme or topic dedicated to your entire book!

Challenge deadline - Books/pages/& journaling projects should be completed for this challenge NLT December 31st, 2013.

Note: At the end of the challenge, we'll take a vote & I'll send the winner a randomly fun mixed media prize pack!

Weekly Tips:

Each or every other week, I'll try my best to include something fun or inspirational towards our challenge!

This week to begin, I'll think I'll start with a motivational/organization al tip!

Tip - Grab It & Go! Consider setting up a home for your project. When not in use, keep it in a cloth/fabric/eco-friendly shopping bag, a scrap caddy, a plastic artbin, etc. (i.e. something that is portable).

Be sure to go ahead and stock your bag, box or bin with extra art supplies that you can be sure to use when away from home (journaling pens, inks, stamps, tabs, stickers, paperclips, adhesive, etc!)




When going portable, consider using a zipper, pouch pencil case, makeup bag or plastic school case to contain all of your writing pens, small tools, clips or post-its.

1. Kelly (KellyCali)

Currently, I have the black Mod Book.

Couldn't resist, made a trip to Target over the weekend & also picked up the pink Pretty Style, as well as the green 365 collection.



Update! I'm going to attempt to complete 2 books.

- Black Mod Style = Retro/Housewife/Day in the Life
- Pink Pretty Style = Vintage Love/Inspiration

Photo of the covers of the 2 books that I am working on, as well as a couple of my completed pages so far.

I may or may not add a couple of small touches to them.

TFL!

Figured I'd drop off some pages that I already made.

Heres the intro-nothing special-just some journaling

I think I'd like to join. I'm not sure on a title yet. I think I will do random thoughts/inspiration/phot ography

I have the red folio

Here is a pic of my smash book and supplies. I'm having a little bit of trouble getting started. Lots of ideas, just don't know which one to go with. HOWEVER! Loving all the inspiration and pages posted so far. It helps a ton. I plan to get something going this weekend.

Smash! By Swonders

Yay! I got my first page done. It's simple but it's a start.

Front cover of Smash Book -- updated! By Klweist

I'd love in so I can finish this one. I had so much fun doing the first 5 pages and decorating the cover. I may keep adding touches to the cover because I have so much fun doodling on it.

The twist is 'Life On The Farm'.

Hi everyone - Kelly- is it too late to join? I stumbled across this looking in the challenges for something else & I have several K&C smash books- 1 that I've been working on & need to put more into it- I have several things stuffed that I need to glue & all in there- this would be a great motivation for me to actually do it

Here is my book so far:

Here is a quick one I finished while still not finishing my other 2-pg as I have not got the wording right (trying to write a poem of sorts) - thought this was a fun distraction- my new Love of Washi Tape

SmashBook- Love of Washi Tape By Charcats7

Here's my finished Army pages- I scanned & printed the name tapes & rank as the velcro isn't friendly to adhesives...

SmashBook - Army By Charcats7

here are 2 2pg pages I did today- one is a redo I took out the actual knit flowers I put in there & put photos in place as well as other photos of all the loom knitting projects I've done- the actual items were way too bulky for me:

I am hoping to find some help here. I was given a SMASH BOOK for my birthday in Feb. but I don't seem to be able to get started with it. Kind of like buying a gorgeous paper pack and not wanting to cut into it, because you want the project to be worthy of the paper.

Do I sound a little crazy or a whole lot of crazy? Not sure what to do or how to start. I have the Red Book and a number of items including washi tapes (new obsession). I'll try to get a photo of the stuff and post soon.

Ideas? My Smash Book is an open book...

Here's my first set of pages.
