Mixed Media Journal

Hi there!

How are you all enjoying your Fall? I love this time of year...the weather is mild, the sun shines most days, and it's just good to be alive!

I've been busy making things for some possible Craft Fairs this Christmas. In between time, I started a Mixed Media Journal. Once in a while I'll probably show you some of the pages out of it...if any of them turn out okay.

However, since this is my first attempt at a journal (2nd at MM)...I'm throwing it out there. 

Note some of the texture in that last shot! This was a lot of fun to do...I find it very therapeutic. Interestingly, it started out really, really ugly. I wasn't sure what to do with it...but eventually it came together okay. I hope I get better as I keep at it! 

Well, that's all I have for you today. I haven't had time to make any digitals lately, but hopefully I'll get a chance some time soon!

Have a good week!
