Over in my Facebook Art Journaling group we have just completed a junk journal challenge which ran through the month of August. I have had an overwhelming amount of people taking part and loved every minute of it. Such beautiful books and journals were created. I for one will most definitely be making many more, they are so pretty and it has been so therapeutic. I will be using mine as a Happiness and Inspiration journal to log my moments of happiness and likes as well as adding mood boards and inspirational quotes.
The images from my journal are below as well as a video flip through of the completed journal. You can check out the pages participants have made using the hashtag #kmmamjunkjournal on Instagram, there are some stunning pages. People have taken part across a range of platforms; on their blog, in the group, You Tube, on Instagram and on Google Plus.
A short post to say that in addition to the Junk Journal challenge I have a Travelling Journal sign up going on over on my Facebook Group. You can read the full instructions over there and sign up to a UK or US circle. Unfortunately for this challenge you must be a member of the Facebook Group.
SIGN UP INSTRUCTIONS: Each person sends off a notebook with one completed page and a signed message page on the back of it or next to it. There will be a posting date each month the first being August 20th to send to the next person on the list (numbered) and eventually it will get back to the first. Each month you will have a new book and will complete a new page then post again on the 20th of each month. SIGN UP BY 23RD JULY.
How It Works: Each person sends off a journal page in a book they have bought, we would each send off a journal on the 20th of each month. I will put together a list of who sends to who. It carries on until the journal has been round the circle and in the end we each get the original journal sent back to us with an entry from each person. Each circle will have 6 people in the circle, so will run till January 20th. We can have as many circles as sign up.
Please state in the group if you are not from the UK so we can see if there is enough interest for a US or Canada or Australian circle.
Hope to see you there,
Hi all, just a quick round up of what I have been up to over the end of term school holidays...aww, it's so lovely to have a break from work and so nice to be able to catch up on my planners, creative journaling, smash books, art and blog. I really have been using the break for a bit of me time... the marking can wait. I can't believe it is Easter already, where is time going? Crazy!
