    Hello again!
    Welcome to the Art Journaling Monthly Muse!
    Muse:
    verb: to reflect deeply on something
    noun: the source of artistic inspiration

    November for most of us is a month of reflection on being
    Grateful- Thankful- Thanks Giving - Gratitude-
    so I would like us to take these words as out inspiration for the month.
    For this week #1
    , I would like you to think about what I call the Simple Abundance: the little things we tend to take for granted but that make our world every day a better one.
    So, I have a quote and I have put together an inspiration board.
    Take the quote and anything you fancy from the visual board, and bring us a page of your gratitude for your little things!
    here is the quote:

    and our board

    Once you are ready to share your page make sure you add it to the Art Journaling Gallery HERE and then post it in this thread. To do so, copy the 3rd link on the right hand side of your LO, the one that reads :
    Share BB Code:
    and just paste the copied link into your text in the post DO NOT use any icons, no need to click on anything, just copy on the link, then paste it here in your text! :)

    :)

    We will draw a winner at the beginning of next month, even more incentives for your inspiration! You can use any products in The Lilypad store, make sure you follow our gallery guidelines.
    GALLERY RULES: Layouts must contain at least 50% TLP products. (Templates count as 15%.) Uploads must be less than 250k. List all credits; no off-site linking allowed.
    The pages are due the last day of the month, but of course you can bring them earlier!

    Let me know if you have any questions, we have been having net connections problems at home but I will try be here for you asap if you tag me!!!
    Thanks so much for playing with us!!!! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!!

    I didn't use the quote, but thought about the things that are usually taken for granted.

    Hello. I'm still finding my way around the forum and discovering what kind of things happen here. This sounds like fun. I am curious. Some of you have posted a narrow strip for this challenge next to three grey strips. Why is this?

    @Angela Toucan Angela, you can find out all about the skinnies in this thread from the Monthly Muse in Feb. That is when @AnneofAlamo started the craze with those, :)
    https://the-lilypad.com/forum/threads/closed-monthly-muse-february-2017-get-skinny-week-1.47127/

    You use one skinny of the page every week and at the end of the month you have a page with four developed skninnies that maybe build on each other, coordinate (or not), however you wish.

    Some others use four squares on one page, triangles, inchies, concentric circles and what not. People still use them in the monthly muse pages.

    Here are some more threads:

    My inspiration came mainly from the red and green of the two photos on the bottom left.
