Firstly CONGRATULATIONS to Jo Murray & Vicki (Hula-la) who were the winners of our Joy In The Post Blog Party giveaway. They each receive a journal and stash of art/craft goodies to help them make their own art journal and round robin swap. If you were inspired to organise or participate in your own art journal round robin then take a look at this inspiring post written by Lisa full of tips.
This week I've been trying to make a journal for our next swap. I've used ideas from Sue M Doggett's book 'Handmade Books'. Trouble is, for my first attempt, I may have over reached in trying to adapt her own instructions. Maybe I should have made it easier on myself. Never mind; it will be unique. My colours for our themed swap are 'Magenta, Teal and Silver'. Here, in a photo story, are my attempts so far at making a journal box full of individual journals.
- What new creative skill/method have you tried recently? How did it go?
- OR if you haven't tried anything new in a while: what creative medium/method/style would you like to try your hand at? What attracts you to this art form?
Wishing you all a Happy & Creative weekend!
