We're each doing two 2-page spreads in each journal.....here are my first couple of spreads. Leslie's theme is "art", how ever and what ever moves you. I know she enjoys vintage images so I used that as my jumping off point for both layouts.
We agreed we could share the journals online since they ALWAYS look so much better in person (and I'm sure I'll totally forget what people have done by the time I actually get my journal back!). (Leslie, if you want to be surprised, stop reading here!)
Leslie made her own journal and used what feels like a heavy weight watercolor paper. I like how she torn the edges of some of the pages and stitched flaps on others, making lots of interesting places to add art. The 'vintage' pic is of my mom at about 18. I used acrylic paints, gelli & scrapbook papers, pen & markers.
The second spread has a much calmer, more vintage feeling.....I've used lace, old papers, new papers, feather, ribbon, a quote (under the bird tag flap), etc. This image is of my great great grandparents. Definitely vintage!
So, I'm eagerly awaiting for the next journal to arrive and see how my creativity will be stretched for that theme!
