Journal page - Make the most of your time every day.

Another page in my book of intentions.
Another random template - I think that I might get the hang of it after all!
The prompt was 'What is happening right now?'

The focal image was again torn out of the Sunday supplement, and 'messed about with a bit'

Book of Intentions - struggling into the world of journalling with templates and prompts

You can click photos to enlarge

I finally adding some wording - which I am finding rather hard.

This is another page - not the one next to the  above.
You can tell how I feel about it by the messy photo!

I am struggling with images at the moment  - no magazines etc the Sunday 'You' which didn't really have anything inspiring.   I am not happy with this page, but will keep it in to remind me how 'bad' I was when I started out.  This first book is designed as experimental.
I picked out a 'prompt' and a template at random then set about tearing, sticking, drawing, masking, and writing to fit the prompt.
You'll probably recognise the 'Never look back' heading from the weekend mag.  Again I picked a template at random, and ahered to the desing rigidly!

I where the black paint is - I did open up my soul - which was very hard - but as the tutor writes in her notes -  you can paint over it or cover it with more backing paper - which I did - and was surprised how good it felt to do so.  A bit like writing something on a blackboard and rubbing it out!

I am only going to post a few more of my pages, then leave it until the book is finished - hopefully they will get better
I am taking a bit of 'time out' so you won't see much of me on the forums or leaving comments.  I will be visiting your blogs though and keeping up to date with what you are doing - just don't have enough time to leave comments at the moment.
