And More Journal Pages.......

By now, you might think that this is all I've done over a very short period of time, ha! I don't really have a "process" for my journal...and probably never will.  But I do try to touch it every day, even if it's only to jot a couple of things down for a few minutes.  On other days, there is more time, and on those days, I sit at my work table and wash color over my pages, doodle, and paste goodies into it.  I attached a pocket to the inside cover, so I can tuck "goodies" into it until I have time to work with them again.  This pocket will contain bits of magazines, little notes and cards given to me by friends, fortunes from fortune cookies, stickers and more.  Collecting the goodies is a really fun part of the process.

For example, adorable napkins from the adorable Curly Girl!!!!


More bits of collage pages from Teesha Moore, and the quirky bird is actually a dog toy from an ad in one of Martha Stewart's mags......


Misc images from magazines in my stash......



"10 Thoughts on Whole Living" from Whole Living Magazine....


Whole Living Info continued....and on the lower left hand side, you will find the paint chip for my upstairs studio!  We just painted it a couple of weeks ago, and I love it.  The color is called Pageant Song.


The funny little "person" on the right was a drawing I found on the floor of our studio at the end of a busy Saturday.  I just had to keep it!  I turned it into a page in the journal.


I'm obsessed with round and teardrop shapes.


The monkeys are from adorable gift wrap on a birthday present from my friend Chris!!

 Thanks for visiting, have a great Tuesday!!!

I love your journal pages--they are so cheery and fun. Curly Girl is fabulous. I have some napkins like that--what a great idea to put it in my running journal. Thanks for the idea!
