I was colouring up a new digi I got FREE from SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM for entering one of their monthly Challenges.... it's called 'Imagination', from Smeared Ink, and I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do with it. I'd always fancied starting some sort of Journal type thing that I see people making. I found the instruction book for my little camera that has just died on me, and it seemed a shame to just throw it away. I have decided to use it for doing other stuff that's not cards etc. and just for things that pop into my mine etc, so I suppose that's a sort of Journal !! :-) I glued 2 of it's flimsy pages together and added some plain white paper to make it stiff, then mounted my coloured image and some embossed card, with a sentiment I got from Ginger's House which I thought was very suitable for me LoL.......... Et Voila !!
Here it is as was.......................
I haven't decorated the front yet or the inside first page, but here's what I did with my freebie image (coloured with Copics)..... Click Pic to enlarge...........

I love that Ike. I had to pop over here to read all about it! Awesome job. I may have to do something just to get that image. :)ReplyDelete
The start of your journal looks great with the quirky image, and your doodling.
Thank you so much for joining us this week at Our Creative Corner, we are so pleased to see your work.
Sad to think of all the things I've thrown away in the past that could have been really awesome if re-purposed; like your instruction manual here. I love the freebie image you've used and Ginger's House sentiments are always the best! Super job here on the beginnings of your masterpiece. ;)ReplyDelete
