From the Book of Luck

My current notebook journal, the Book of Luck,  is in full use. I am loving it to bits. Here are some spreads to show you that a journal need not have any rhyme or reason. It can just be whatever you want and even be something different in every spread or page you fill.






















You can draw, you can write, you can do pretty collages or just paste in random stuff, you can write on the lines or ignore them, you can go sideways or upside down, you can put in your photographs or photographs of others you find pretty, you can stick in everyday ephemera and litte keepsakes from special trips, you can attach things that flip open or attach things with paperclicps, you can test new art supplies or finally again use old ones, you can do portraits after mail order catalogues or just the ones that are in your head, you can stick in information leaflets and articles from websites or even steal a poem.

It's a journal, it's a free zone and anything goes. Don't you just love that?

    1. Haha, that's okay, just work with what you CAN use and leave those nasty lines to me! ;-)

  3. You have done so much with this journal in a short amount of time. Each page is unique and colorful. I like the pictures that go along with all the places you have visited. Thanks for the journal page address.

  4. Such fun, Caatje! I love the riot of color on so many pages, then the more demure portrait pages, and lots of fold-out pages to make it interactive. What a treasure!

I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
