Handmade Journals

On the 1st of November UK Scrappers held a bloghop and I spent a lovely few hours visiting all the sponsors who took part. I bookmarked a lot of the lovely projects so that I could revisit them and make some of them in the future. The first project I have had fun with was on "A Sprinkle of Imagination" blog where Vicki made a really gorgeous journal. I will not go into all the details of how to make it as you can see it at first hand if you click HERE.
Below you can see I have made two journals. One I have made for this years Christmas journal, this year it will be all handwritten journalling from me up until Boxing Day. Other years I have always done a scrapbook style journal.












I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have produced.
Vicki, thank you so much for a really great project and inspiring me to do these journals. I am sure I will be making many more.

You've got a real flair for this - and I have to tell you that art journalling is ADDICTIVE!! Lovely work, and you've given me food for thought concerning a Christmas journal.
