I have tried for many years to create a scrapbook layout to honor my older sister, Carolyn. She was only 40 years old when she died in a plane crash. She lived out in Colorado,where she had gone to college and had established roots. She loved to fly. She loved to ski. She was very funny, strong, smart and independent. I collected paper and embellishments for years trying to come up with the right combination...and failed. I recently got together with some friends to try something new: Art Journalling. My friends generously shared their collections of ephemera, stamps, and stencils and suddenly...it worked.
