19 - Top 10 Things To Keep Me Calm

I made this entirely from scraps (except for the CSI coordinate), and formatted it to fit in my art journal, which is much smaller than a standard scrapbook page. For testimony, I used the words calm and reading on a Top 10 list, and for testimony I made a pleated rosette (I realized after chat this method makes a completely different rosette than the scoreboard type), I also border punched two sides of the yellow paper, although you can't see it on the bottom now.
I also used a good number of the coordinates to make another layout - the colors were perfect, but my journaling on that layout had nothing to do with the testimony here. I will try to get posted on my blog soon.

Oh, what a cool list to document. I should do one like that. It would be interesting to see if the list changes over the years. Your layered rosette looks neat, and I love that picture of you! Didn't know you kept an art journal--so cool!

Love your list Ellen! I have a list similar to yours but half of them I never do. LOL I should do these more often! Beautiful addition to your art journal!
