One Journal Ends and a New One Begins...

Hi friends, how is your week going so far?  I started a new journal, and I'm excited to share the first three finished spreads with you...

 For week one of Book of Days, we prepared a manifesto to start our journey.  I chose a quote I found on pinterest, and included my personal journaling around the edges as a border...
 (acrylic paint, stenciling, paper tape, rubber stamps, photograph, stabilo all water-soluble pencil, paint markers and alpha stickers)

This one is my personal journaling for the first week...
 (dictionary paper, gesso, high flow acrylics, magazine images, stencil, acrylic paint, journaling marker, stabilo all pencil, and oil pastel)

 Week Two in Book of Days - we played around with watercolor techniques inspired by the song "True Colors..."
(watercolors, walt, dictionary paper, stabilo all pencil, acrylic paint, paint markers and rubber stamp alphabet)

I forgot to take pics of the new journal before I started filling it, but I will do that for the next post, along with pics of my last journal all filled up!

I'm looking forward to the next One Little Word challenge which will be up on Thursday!

I'm also looking forward to next Monday when I will be participating in a virtual blog hop, thanks to my awesome friend Lee Clements. The hop is going from blog to blog on a weekly basis, and I was invited by Lee to be next in line.  Check out Lee's post here.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!  I really appreciate you!

Hello Michelle!! So happy to see you here! I love these pages, True Colors is such a good song. Great job on these and I read the post below that I missed and love them too.
So happy your enjoying the class and creating. Can't wait to see what you do for the next challenges coming up.

I have been scrapping like crazy, the first set is on my blog and will post more later. The weather is hot and muggy, YIPPEE!! Didn't think spring/summer would ever get here.
Hope all is well, hugs!
