December Rolodex Card-a-Day - last month!

2014 is over and so is my Rolodex Card-a-Day Art Journaling project! I had a great time doing this and it really stretched me doing art every day (or almost every day).  

After a few months, I totally outgrew the original rolodex and I have now transferred the years' worth of cards into an old ribbon storage box that I was about to throw out. It is just the right width for the cards and 15" long!

This was the rolodex in early May - getting full!

Completed year - still need to decorate the box

Here are the December cards. You can see they are heavily influenced by the holidays!

So there you have a years' worth of almost-daily art journaling! I used up lots of scraps, tried new techniques and stretched my creative muscles to come up with different ideas and layouts. I am not going to continue this in 2015. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed it, it's time for something new. I will be doing a few other yearly challenges, so stay tuned for what those projects might be!

Happy New Year! What creative endeavors do you want to pursue in 2015?
