Special occasions have a way of generating ephemera that either gets thrown in the trash or stashed away in boxes never again to see daylight. Art journaling is good for people who like to keep things like that. If it’s in a journal, it’s organized into a display that will more likely be seen than if it were packed up in a box or a file folder. The page above is about my recent birthday. It contains scraps of wrapping paper, cards and envelopes, etc., all collaged together and decorated with colored markers.

The one below has some leftovers from Valentine’s Day mixed in with gift labels and decorations from a couple of other occasions. Someone apparently celebrated with breakfast at McDonald’s on at least one of them.
