So, it's been another huge gap since my last post. No excuses at all!

I just wanted to share my latest craze. Journalling.

I did a bit of looking around and there seems to be different types of journaling. I've found art journals, sentiment journals, Project Life etc. As usual I don't fit into a nice little pigeon-hole so my journal will be a bit of everything. Depending on the mood it'll be a diary type snap shot, art experiments and scrapbooking....plus anything else that takes my fancy.
My first layout was a double page one that chronicled a week.

I used all sorts of pens, pencils and even a bit of scrap decopatch paper I found in the bottom of a box.

The next 2 were art experiments...

If you can read the writing I was VERY unimpressed with the left hand layout. It's grown on me a bit since then. The 4 rectangles were printed out from the web and the brown strip was ripped from a chinese note book. The colour was watercolour pencils and pens. The right hand layout was pencils and watercolour crayons. I'm liking the idea of this theme so I'll go back to it to see what else I can come up with.

My final 2 layouts...

 These are more scrapbooking than anything. I hit Hobbycraft today so these are a mix of old and new. The backgrounds are stuff I've had for years and the top layers are new today. I'll write something in the right hand one tomorrow.

The plan is to either crate a new page each day or create elements for a new layout. I'm thinking tomorrow is a day for making tags....yup, definitely tags!
