Book of Days Meets Lollapalooza 3 Meets Glue-it Tuesday...

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to share my new Book of Days journal with you!  This is the complement to my Book of Mirrors, which I shared in the last post.  Where the Book of Mirrors records my inner world, This Book of Days contains the daily documenting of my days, or  outer world, so to speak.   Together they cover the whole Book of Days process.

I decided to make a separate journal for these entries after taking Martha Lever's Lollapalooza 1, 2 and 3 journaling workshops.  All three lend themselves well to doing daily entries.  The first one I am using is in the style of Lollapalooza 3...

Here are my first few pages...

BOOK OF DAYS


Title page...
Note:  This style of journal keeping works really well for Glue-it Tuesday too!  Lots of cutting, pasting and glueing going on!

The cute little dog was cut from Best Friends Magazine (my fave source for adorable animal photos).

 July 1st...
 Its so fun to use all my supplies on these pages.  Stamps, Rub-ons, magazine cut outs, and inspirational photos of artwork that I love.  The two bigger colorful images here are from Papaya Arts, and Martha Lever.

July 2nd and 3rd...

This kind of journal is a blast to work in!  I've done a grid journal before, but Martha's techniques add a whole new level of color and fun to the process!!!

Hi again, just saw your comment on my blog.
I order my pictures online from Walgreens. When ordering they have a link for regular pictures or collages and more. So I pick the collage link and from there you go to what size and if you want a title or not then pick the pictures. They show you a collage and if you want the photos different you can switch them around even. They have color choices for the backgrounds of them too, I love picking the ones that will match my pages that week. It's super easy and fun.
Hope this helps!
Thanks so much for the visit, I've missed your comments.
