Sometimes I see an element and I need to build something around it. For me that usually means a journal, an ATC, or a piece of stationery. I'm finding that I love working with these smaller projects in part because it's not as overwhelming as working on large scale pages. I can focus on smaller pieces at a time and have fun shuffling through my scraps and bits to come up with something that I like.
For this particular journal it was finding this phrase in a magazine. I knew I wanted to do something with it and decided that a quick and easy journal sounded good. Folding a single 12" x 12" page to make this four section journal, I left two top tabs open for tags. Rather than putting in a lot of embellishments I decided to pull some fun pages together, just simple embellishments on each one, a tab to identify each page spread, and a pretty ribbon to tie it all together.
My thinking is that it will be great for writing in or even for glueing down photos, mementoes, or ephemera of some sort.
It was fairly quick and easy to make and I like the simplicity of it. I also love the theme of that quote right on the front cover.
p.s. not sure why these pictures insist on coming through sideways but at least this way you can see the full two page spread
