Journals




These photos are part of the cover of my junk journal. I started out using a technique I learnt in DJ's class, but then added my own twist to it.




This page was made from the scraps I found on the floor after my last vintage workshop, except for the elephants and elephant ribbon, they came from Patsy.




Two more pages from my journal, using paint, napkins, branded tissue paper from a shop and a black Sharpie.

I received a fabulous package of goodies from Judy on Friday, you should visit her Etsy she has some wonderful things.
Great for art or jewellery making.

Your Junk Journal is amazing - there is such depth behind those lovely spirals on the cover, and the pages are gorgeous. Love the elephants and poppy seed heads and wish I could do all that. I'm just going to visit Judy and look at your stories. Thankyou for sharing all these wonderful things with us.

Your name is synonymous for bright splashes of glorious colour (which I love) but I have to say I'm loving the earthy Ro too.

I just love this journal and I am busy saving scraps and envelopes in readiness for this class (can one put their name down in advance???). I thought I recognised some of those scraps/fabrics from somewhere.... recylcling our waste. You are so clever.
Pages are wonderful Ro and I have a lovely new napking with an elephant on that you will love...definately be a couple in your surprise bag on Saturday.
