OK...here are a few more pages from my journals. I have actually started two different journals. One I had made for a class at Paper Vineyard as inspiration. The other is from the online class I am taking.
First up: The cover from Hope's class. She provided the print outs for us to collage our cover. Somehow when I printed mine it came out smaller than I expected so I just added some old dictionary paper and a little sewing pattern paper underneath to finish off the page. I really like the way it looks.
Next is the first page of the class journal. Our prompt was to choose a quote that we liked and then cut out photos from magazines or catalogs of things we liked. I didn't really have much to choose from as I save most of the magazines I get so I went with a Pier 1 advertisement. It worked. :)
On a recent trip to Michaels I picked up some very inexpensive oil pastels to play with. I have used regular pastels in the past but not oils. It was fun to experiment a bit with them. I did learn that they do not create a great background for many of my writing pens. haha
And last one up is another page from my inspiration journal that I am doing on my own. Here I am mostly trying out different styles and techniques that I have seen online.
More to come tomorrow!
