Creative journaling seems to be my craft of the month. I broke the seal on my Nancy Drew junk journal with some happy/swap mail salvages:
My first pocket and journaling card! This page is to commemorate my first major outing since last spring, to Harvest Days at a local museum. It was a lot of fun but also involved my locking my keys in the car in the parking garage and stepping off a curb such that shortly afterward I bought a box of extra large bandages and my mom signed me up for AAA .
The back of the card, yet to be journaled. I didn’t really have much ephemera from the event – just the sticker and a year-round brochure for the Halloween decorated house we toured – but the fabulous envelope art @bluebird sent me in the Happy Mail Craftalong fit the theme nicely.
And a coffee-run themed one from my post-oil change Starbucks trip.
But wait, there’s more! Playing with markers in my regular art journal has been a great destresser lately. It’s funny how the journaling spots always just seem to materialize.
And finally, a previously made background that I painted out under the influence of Alisa Burke. I turned the journal sideways because I didn’t like the idea of the seam running through letters.
reading my novel looking. (Seriously, though, you can probably count this toward your Goodreads challenge.)
