Calendar journaling

This week the obvious starting point was to spray through my new stencils with lovely bright Dylusions Inks. Happy Happy Place :-)

Had time on Sunday after finishing my previous calendar spread to prepare for Monday. Had to include the stamps from my parcel too
The journal I'm working in is a hardcover sketchbook that I bought at Warehouse Stationery.
For the calendar journaling, the pages are not heavy enough to prevent colour coming through to the other side. So I just work on alternate spreads, then glue the backs together when I'm done.
This also means I can add stitch to my pages
- I would like to do more of this
You can see my other calendar journaling pages in my Flickr set. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. The sprays look like a lot of fun. I haven't tried sewing on my pages yet. I like how it looks.
    Love your pages.

  5. Wonderful pages Lynette, I haven't started one but certainly intend to. I think the problem is I wait for the weekend when I should start on any old day! Today!!

  6. Lynette, do you have any books that the ink/paint/dye etc don't flow they pages of? I've come to accept this as normal (but annoying). The way you wrote about it here I wondered if you had found a magic journal where it doesn't actually happen ;o)

  7. With these pages, I sprayed the ink and then rolled over with paper towel or press other paper over to soak up excess ink. Also it shows through the back, but that is why I glue pages together back to back. Hope that is what you mean
