Jekyll & Hyde?

I really can't get my head around this journaling stuff.........so I've started another one using a book I'd made a year ago. This has hand made papers, painted, inked and generally more arty and grungy than the first one.

I think I'm going to do them both... then both the grungy me and the neat freak me will be satisfied!

This is week 2, the promt is Gift.


The page is to include the best, the worst and some kind of recycled packaging. The page above is more general which is how I'm going to approach the grungy journal.


This journal will give me the opportunity to soothe the orderly part of me!



Jekll or Hyde..............I can never decide!

I *love* the grungy one an awful lot. I was going to say yesterday about keeping it more general - I thinkk that's how I'm going to approach the challenges too. :-)

You see I like the grungy and I like the neat. But which is better... there is only one way to find out... FIGHT!!

I like the grungy one best. Wire rack for your vaccum accessories whatever will they think of next!

Personally I like the grungy one though I can appreciate the need for the nore ordered one if that is what calls you! Nothing wrong with having both running, one alongside the other, best of both worlds!

I'm definitely a grunge gal. But both are fab.

I started art journaling last year, and you can definitely see the "growth" in my journal. You're so creative, you'll end up with a great one!
