One night I took my "If I don't see it ..." and my "personal goals" journal (see more posts on these journals here and here and here) and I decided to just add paint. I thought I was happy with the pages the way they were but then when I added paint I thought - how could I have thought those pages were finished.
You've seen some of these pages before in various states of layers and colors but now I do believe some of these are finished!
I always am drawn to squares on pages!
Those birds on the black backgrounds are actually post it notes or flags as they call them - aren't they great - they are from Papyrus!
Love this quote from Austin Kleon
Another great post and my new eyeglass paper clips!
Cut out from a watercolor piece I did - I think they look better here.
Another cut out from one of my watercolors on the left and on the right a page which I applied resin to - love the look
This page came out in the most beautiful shade of lavender but it doesn't really show here.
I loved this page before but now love it even more with the blue background.
More journal pages. This is a different journal. It's the red one below. I think this book was actually meant to be like a photo album and the paper inside is really nice.
This one is not finished yet but it's a good start. You'll see some pages of just backgrounds waiting for more. This journal is more personal than most. It's actually a compilation of quotes, my goals, my thoughts, some about me, things I like, lists, and pictures I like.
I didn't add any of my comments below the pictures - just pictures for you to enjoy.
Let me know how you like them.
What are you private goals and dreams and do you put them in your journal?
