I finally got round to doing my journal pages for the KCUK mingle and boy did I find it difficult! The page size – 6” x 4” and the fact that we had to keep to a theme really affected me but eventually, I had an idea and just went with it.
My poor little blackbird looks a bit odd but that’s cos I stamped him over where two pieces of text paper meet and had to colour over him with a black Sharpie! I used Archival ink on these and I really don’t like it as much as Stazon – it isn’t quite so black, but it covers acrylic well.
I have very mixed feelings about these because I usually journal for me, not for other people, as a way of getting things off my mind and knowing that no one will ever really see them in person, so I’m worrying that the recipient won’t like them! There are 11 of us and we have to make two pages for each person on the same theme, so I suppose I’d better get used to it. I’ll struggle to work on the same theme over and over again.
