Journal Journey Ch04

Hello, hello my journal friends. I have decide to make challenge post stick to the top position so please look lower down for new posts, thank you. We had a drop in numbers last month which was a little sad. However, the quality of the work was far from down. I saw all your journal pages and I was really impressed by all your work and how many techniques you all know. This really impressed me a lot. 

So on to the Journal challenge for October. I do hope you will all join in and spread the word, I have a blog button on my side bar if you haven't added it to your blog already. I love Autumn, October is a time of many changes in nature, many colours, leaves and flowers also a time of new birds to take flight to warmer places and others to get ready for the colder weather ahead. So I would like you this month to do a page/spread on:- 

'Nature & Autumn'

So if it's leaves, trees, or birds, flowers, animals (of any kind such as squirrels, dear or foxes) or sky's I really would love to see all the things you associate with Nature & Autumn. This is really a very wide subject, I do this to give you freedom to choose as a journal is so personal to so many. However, if you would like me to give you an additional thing to include my answer is STENCIL use a stencil somewhere in your page/spread. Below is my example to get the inspiration flowing I hope this helps.







I hope you find my journal spread inspirational in some small way, remember I am still learning and getting used to what my very own style will be, so don't be afraid to have a go your self. I hope you decide to pick up an old/new journal and express the nature and colours of Autumn in your very own way. Remember you have a whole month. Love Dawn xx

Please remember to put a link in your post back to this post and when linking your journal page please link to the post not just the blog. As this challenge lasts a month it could be time consuming to find your post. Love Dawn xx

Stunning pages Dawn! Now I have taken the first plunge into the world of journalling, I may have to join in with your challenge xx

Dawn, couldn't get the Linky to work the first time so I tried it again and got it. Maybe you can remove the first one. Also, can you tell me how to link to the post specifically? I think I just linked to the blog in general. You did "top notch" on your journal pages. Hope this gets the ball rolling.
