This Journaling Business!

Is such hard work.............not my thing at all but I've started so I'll finish, only another 48 weeks to go! I'm the one who posts the weekly prompt (here) so why don't I think how difficult it might be before I decide what it is? but I suppose that might be cheating. Week4 was all those sweeties you remembered as a child. My best friend did look just look like the girl with the bow in her hair.


Week 3 .. schooldays.

If you were wondering where the grungy journal is...........................

It's in the bin!

I *was* wondering where the grungy journal was!!

I guess some people like to work from very specific prompts to get started. But I struggle with them - I'm not a very obedient student ...

So, when I finally get round to my pages this weekend I'm going to be interpreting them pretty loosely really.

I liked the grungy journal ...

I liked the grungy journal too!

But these "clean" pages are gorgeous also - you might feel like you are pulling teeth, but the end results are brilliant.

I'm not great with prompts either, my best journal pages so far seem to be the ones that just evolved on their own and I had no idea where they were headed.

But I will def have a go at this sweetie one, it's a nice nostalgic subject like the school days one was.

I'm enjoying this 52 week prompt thing, don't give up :)

Hi Gail love what you're up to and hope you don't mind but I've "pinched " the pic of the fabulous shoes you did for the Ribbon Girls and put it on my blog -- I just think they're fantastic .
Will keep popping by to see what you're up to next

Poor grungy journal!!
I like these pages, especially the sweetie one, brought back lots of memories esp Kali which I think is a northern thing!!

Deborah said...

I'm struggling too (2 pages behind!) but I really love your pages.
