Default Another Journal

I made a journal for my Bible Study again this year. I used a marble composition book and I had a pile of scraps from a nonPW paper pack that I wanted to use, but I added a cool technique Gail showed last week in a webisode to tear a frame and place it on a background paper. So I used Happy Days paper for this technique. I used Faber Castell Gel Medium as my "glue" as it gives a smooth, non tacky finish. I also added washi tape to the binding and edges. I had to make the second layer because I thought it would be cool to apply Zing Embossing Glitter - but when I did that, it obscured the collage and I didn't like the look.

"Mistakes are just an opportunity to embellish", right? I think it is the Frugal Crafter video blog where I heard that first.

Anyway, these journals are fun to make, and since I look at it every day for 10 months, I want to make it personalized.

That is wonderful. Thanks for the idea! I use those notebooks for my Bible Study journals all the time and now I know how to spruce it up!

Enjoy your day,
Daria
