|The decoupage cover of my current scrapbook journal|
I'm reviewing less books for awhile (on purpose) so I'm thinking there will be time to work on my scrapbook journaling again. I have done a form of scrapbook journaling for a very long time but after seeing what Jewels did with her journals (gosh, nine years ago perhaps?), it took my own to a new level.
It is very easy for me to pick up scrapbook journaling again, I have all the materials needed including issues of favorite magazines and cut out images (a lot from vintage Victoria) collected through many years.
So I thought today I would share some pages I have completed in the past. I used to create a page on two sides of the paper but it doesn't work very well with bonded scrapbooks. I will go back to a spiral scrapbook next time.
Thus was the telling and here is the showing. These were all created a couple years ago. It is time to get back to them...
|I started doing more layering in the "newer" journal.|
|I also started using washi tape as art.|
|I typed this up when I needed to write down good things about February.|
|Sometimes I add favorite quotes.|
|This page included my To Do list for the month.|
|I have terrible handwriting but sometimes I write out a quote to make it personal.|
|These pages contain so many different items that put together make Art.|
|I had pretty washi tape and stickers to use here.|
I wanted to make the plain black sketchbook (aka: scrapbook journal) look pretty when it was just sitting on my desk so I made a cover using a decoupage of wrapping paper, vintage birthday cards purchased at Brimfield on a trip with my daughter, and various sayings as well as words. I quite like it.
My plan is to create a couple pages a week through the summer. Hopefully.
