January Java Journal with Paper Issues: Journal Cover
Have you been playing along with Paper Issues' January Java Journal challenge? I've done a few mini albums in my time, but never a journal and I have to say, I am loving it!
Every day we post a couple of prompts. You can either use them or take things in your own direction. It's quick. It's easy. It's a whole bunch of fun! The idea is to just run with your creativity and not to over think it (yes, I'm super guilty of that, LOL), spending about five minutes a day (with or without a cup of your favorite beverage).
I started off by decorating the cover. This is a Dear Lizzy journal. It was part of the journaling kit Paper Issues offered for this challenge but feel free to use whatever works for you — a Smash book, a fauxdori, a handmade album, a spiral notebook, etc. I used items from my stash throughout the journal.
Tomorrow I'll give you a look at my first two inside pages. See you then!
