Journal Journey Ch01

I can not tell you how excited I have been about this. I have always enjoyed doing challenges but only in a participant way ;0) I have been on a few design teams so I have a good idea what is involved.  Keeping a journal can be a very personal thing. Or it can be just for fun, or even to help you keep track of the month. I know there are lots of you out there who would like to start journalling but just a bit scared or think time is too tight. You don't have to be able to draw, you can collage, stamp, stencil etc there are so many ways you can journal so I hope you will join in. And for those of you who perhaps started and then stopped. This is an ideal way to get back into it. And for you very experienced journal people out there I do hope you will come and join in the fun as well.

Now each months challenge can be an item I would like you to use, or a technique I would like you to try. There are so many things we can do together. However, we're going to start simple, with a colour challenge! Just to start us all off slowly ;0) it can't be that hard, can it? ;0)


It's July and it should be fairly warm (fingers crossed) and these are wonderful colours for July. Now you can use anything to create your journal page, it can be a calender page or an art page. It can have any medium included like canvass, paint, pastels, ink. The limit is only your imagination as they say ;0) So here is my double spread which I hope will give you some inspiration. You can use other colours, but please make sure the predominate colours are Pink & Orange thank you.

I really hope you will join in and make this NEW challenge a success. Oh and I promise my post for August will not be this long ;0) Love Dawn xx

Please leave your link to the post you're including in this challenge, that way I get to come and visit. And I am sure others will to. You have until the 30th of July next challenge 1st of August ;0)

Interesting, I've never put these two colors together, but I should give it a go. It'll be fun and keep me going after the Strathmore class. Thanks for visiting my blog Dawn.

Off the subject, but do you only post to your blog once a month? Today is Aug. 3rd and your last post was July 1st - just curious.

Dawn said...

Hello Smokeysmom,
