Happy Friday Friends!
This is been a very fast week, it’s just flown by and I feel like I haven’t really achieved much since Monday. Anyway, at least I did get some reading done and also a couple of art journal pages. Many other things remain undone though. Perhaps over the weekend I can check those off the list!
Today’s Art . . .
Today’s art is actually two junk journal pages for #JunkJournalJanuary and one of them also includes one of my photos so I am linking it to AJJ also, where the theme is to use a photo.
Day 9 Hidden (and photo)
The prompt for Day 9 is Hidden so I thought I would create a folded flap that would open and reveal what was hidden underneath.
This entire journal is made from Christmas food packaging and boxes that I saved from going into the bin, like this box of vegan chocolate and mint shortbread. BTW this was awful and I don’t recommend buying it, the mint was overwhelming, but at least I can put the box to good use and I get a minty scented journal! My pages in this journal are roughly 8 x 8 inches and this box gives me that plus one of the sides as the flap so it worked out well.
The photo I am using is one of my frosty garden pics from December…
I printed it off a few times in different sizes…
When the flap is opened the full inside spread is revealed including a little secret pocket on the right side, where a tag or something can be tucked away.
Day 11 Pocket
As the prompt for the day was pocket I ended up adding two pockets – the teabag sachet is cut along the bottom and the tag inserted,and then the dark pink floral paper is also another pocket where I have inserted the green tag and the green and black bookmark.
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!
