I like working in my journal because it answers the call of inspiration without the pressure to "complete". Sometimes I'm inspired to do a background, sometimes to work with patterned paper, sometimes to stamp, and sometimes to write. I work on many pages at once to provide these various inspirations with outlets.
Some of you may like to see the "progression" of a page:
First I do a background, and I may add some borders either glued or painted onto the page. This one is just plain watercolour with some borders cut from an old book:
One day, I grabbed a piece of sponged scrap from my "red" baggie, and stamped out two new stamps:
I cut these out, glued them on the page and added some journalling and white doodling. Thinking the page was finished, I included the date. But a few days ago I added the masks, spelling out the name of the store where I bought some of these lovely things.
So, I think that journal pages are never finished!! Another part of the attraction.
