Journal Page

Morning me and Vicki have decided to make a journal page a month -well actually Vicki was doing it and I asked if I could join her -she has made a list of monthly challenges and I am catching up with January which was-Use scraps of unfinished/unused crafty backgrounds.

I found a few and tore them into scraps and wove them together,then added a see through face from Grandaughters make-up packaging and added a stamped sentiment.

The actual background journal page was already made with mop ups.

I think most of us just go with the flow, and this page Carol is a super example for Elizabeth's challenge. I love the texture you created by weaving and the face. Thanks so much for joining us at AJJ. Hugs-Erika

A very creative journal page,Carol. I love how you placed the scraps and what a clever idea to use the image from a make-up packaging. Great inspiration, my friend. Thank you.

This is absolutely brilliant Carol!! I LOVE how you've taken your strips and woven them for your design! The face is gorgeous and your "mopped up" background is so cool! I never think to save those and need to remember! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration and for joining the AJ adventure together!! This will be such FUN and I look forward to this months page!!!

What a fun concept Carol. I love how you have used the semi-transparent face from some discarded packaging (It was discarded, wasn't it? I now have a vision in my head of a hole cut out of something she was keeping, lol!) Your mopped up background looks fabulous and what a clever idea to weave the torn up strips.

So having not had a chance to get round blogland for a couple of days I'm finally here. I LOVE THIS those torn strips with the face sort of woven in along with the delicate colours is simply beautiful. Great Journal page and I'm delighted to see it at River of Creativity. xx

HilaryJane said...

Brilliant, well done you. I have never kept a journal but having seen so many wonderful pages I keep wondering if I ought to give it a go. Problem is, I would probably just stare at a blank page for hours and have no idea how to start! xx
