Elsie describes this page as a pretty home for small fears. I did the background with Heidi Swapp masks and glimmermists, the text was drawn with a purple slickwriter and filled in with a purple smooch (I do not like smooch, it takes AGES to dry and is difficult to apply).

I am surprised how well this page works turned 90 degrees, it was torn from a magazine. Elsie did a double page spread, with her left hand entirely filled with a busy page from a vintage design book, and the right hand being a sheet of plainer vintage paper that she could write (and doodle) on. Elsie stressed that even if we have had a HORRIBLE day, we need to journal it, and if possible add a positive thought.
I dont feel like making a fabric background, so its my usual glimmermist and chipboard as a mask background. I hope you are enjoying these (no doubt there are MANY more to come). Rachel sewed her photograph and journalling block (made from a scrap of ledger paper) to her page, I used glue dots to attach the ribbon and acrylic journalling block.
A re-occuring theme for Rachel is to use tissue paper as background or lettering to her journal. I dont have any tissue and, since the reason for my journal is to use up my piles of stash, I dont want to buy any more stuff.I do have PILES of chipboard, and a dozen bottles of glimmermists, so that is how I created my title. I used the negative of the chipboard letters as the stencil for the glimmermists, then did one line of journalling.
Beautiful use of tissue here and beautiful lettering here
Elsie did a double page spread for this prompt, she somehow managed to find a magazine page showing the aftermath of a party (probably the inspiration for this prompt). I used this fabby magazine page (look at her gorgeous blue polish) held down with fabric tape and I journalled on sticky labels.

The prompt was to include a drawing, but I decided to use more of my stickers and a pretty journalling spot. Things are very busy presently, I always seem to be checking the calendar and my watch, making sure I am in the right place at the right time.

I mentioned this to my gorgeous husband and he made me a poster ... its an adaptation of
I would like a much more fancy teacup, and it would be much nicer in purple!
I am in a very good place ... I love where I now live and it is amazing to watch the season change from cold and wet to warm and sunny ... my safe place is outdoors, I take every opportunity to explore and my camera goes everywhere with me ... my safe place is also behind the camera ... I like to observe and record
