So here we have the journal, its a Collins Balmoral account book and the first entry was made in June 1982, in my Granddads hand writing.
It is so pretty and the paper is lush to work on, the ink they wrote in though smears if you even think about getting water near it which is a shame.
Here is a view of one of the random pages.
Kate Crane Art Calendar Challenge
I have been saying I would join Kate's challenge every year since she first had the idea but never managed to, this year I am going to follow through with it. Here is my first page no where near done but it has a base ready for writing and doodling on. I am happy with it as it is a blank canvass even though partially decorated waiting for a bit of tarting up as the month progress's.
Willowing's Life book Workshop
Willowing's life book year long workshop has begun, the first task posted. I am not following her idea completely as I want to keep my work in one place for everything I do this year, but I am very happy with the outcome. I may at a later date go back and re do it into her format, who knows the year has only just begun and we all know how fast I can change my mind!
