This is day one, my introduction page, which I wasn't that happy with to be honest. I haven't done too many paper crafts before (part of the reason for doing this course) so it's been taking a while to get the hang of things. The challenge for this page was to use something you wouldn't normally think of using in a journal. The black flower is actually a black iron on transfer that I recieved in a swap literally years ago which I never got around to using.
This is my second day's page - you needed to record your journalling goals. The challenge was to use a reoccuring theme. Again I wasn't too happy with this page. The reoccuring theme is the rabbits on the paper - but I don't think it really works.
I was a whole lot happier with this page! This time the prompt was to record your New Years resolutions for 2011. Mine are:
1. Write more letters and thank you cards.
2. Travel to the West Coast of the USA (In particular San Fran, Portland and Seattle & hopefully head to Canada as well).
3. Complete 50 craft projects in 2011 (project number one is completed)
4. Make some of my own clothes - learn to sew.
The challenge for this day was to use a "cut out" theme - I didn't have a stanly knife (or exacto knife as my America friends say) so I had to keep with a basic shape I could cut cleanly with scissors. So I chose a heart. It came out pretty well.
The prompt for day four was "In 2011,____________ will not be defined by......". For my page I chose "negative thoughts".
The challenge for this page was to use some fiber in the page - I chose a ribbon that came off one of my Christmas presents.
I need to take more photos of the other pages I have completed - so I will be back with these pages soon.
