Today I have been journaling.
Pages 3 and 4 are complete. Over the pink and black ink I pasted 24 images that were selected according to the list in Caspiana's blog for the scavenger hunt for this page. I then used watered down blue acrylic to paint mostly between the images. I then used a copper pen to decorate and add words. The copper doesn't show up to much and is pretty subtle but looks pretty.
Pages 5 and 6 are probably finished. I spent some time writing on the prompt 'I forgot'. I actually found this a little upsetting as I listed many good things that I had forgotten to do. I then taped over most of the words I had written. I used sellotape, book covering plastic, holographic tapes, masking tape, double sided tape, florsists tape (with double sided tape), white labels, yellow post it tape and adhesive velcro pads. I then looked for forget quotes and found this 'remember your humanity and forget the rest'. It felt perfect for this page as it is all about letting go of the things you regret and forgot and moving on... I used sticky letters to put this on the page.
I know this ended up a little different to Caspiana's prompts but hey... I haven't sanded or gesso'd this page and I am as yet undecided about...
One thing is for sure - I can't use the foam letters again in this book as it really won't shut if I do!
