Hello, my crafty friends, Just popping in today with a quick post for the Altered composition Notebook JJ Challenge.
Prompt 1 – Using fibres to create a bookmark and to Journal about 3 Holiday/Xmas/New Year memories, that mean the most to me.
Linda shows you on her Youtube video “HERE” how to make the tassel and the tag. You just go about it the way you want to. Everything I am using for this journal is out of my craft stash!!! This is the first tassel I have made, so not too bad! The tag was fun to do with a bit of mixed media collage and layers.
This is the page that I added the journaling to. It was just white cardstock and I added a bit of ink and doodling. I journaled about spending precious time with my boys and them being home with me for Xmas day. We chatted about different things we remembered about Xmas with mum and dad as we miss them very much. Nothing is the same…… I also wrote about the time my sister and I spent together a few days before Xmas. We finished our Xmas shopping had some yummy food, laughs and talked non-stop. I also saw my niece and nephews who are very precious also…… I have never been a journaler as I love telling stories with my photos, but I am finding this challenge very good for me and it gets me a bit out of my comfort zone.
This is a fun challenge and I am really learning from Linda, along the way. Hop on over and join in too, I would love to see your creations!
Prompt 2 will be up within the net day or so, stay tuned!!
