Journal Time...

I have finally got around to starting to add to the altered book that I prepared to start the Book of Days. 
 I have now decided not to do the BOD,
 but instead do my own, 
and set it around my wishes for 2012.  
I think that this will make it really personal to me, and I can follow my own prompts and structure. 
 I can go where I 'feel' that it is taking me.
(well, that's the plan)

I printed off the 'Believe 2012' that I made at New Year, I'm still sticking to the word, that IS my word for this year.
I decided to collage the background in that patchwork/stained glass window style that I used on the recycled Christmas card.

Almost done.

I kept to 'jewel brights' for my colour theme.  
I didn't plan it, it just happened that way.

Collage all finished.
(it's not finished yet, I still need a tissue layer and to work on top with my crayons)

I stuck my wishes into the inside cover and I'll work into this page too, 
once the glue dries.

As usual, I didn't work alone today.

My little apprentice was on hand working in her journal and offering her very direct opinion 
(wether or not it was asked for)...
and sing a few songs to keep us entertained.

Oh to be 3 again.

Hi Rachel

love it! Believe is such a powerful and appropriate word for 2012, mine is Strength and I definitely think after seeing this, I'll make a book too now. I've been stuck on a theme for a special book for myself for the last few nights and now I've seen yours, a Strength Journal is just screaming at me. Off to gesso the cover before I go to bed :)
