My book last year was 5 x 5 which I found was too small as the year went on.  Still can't decide on whether to make my own book or buy one.  Decisions!  Decisions!  Margaret

I am doing the Journalling classes at the Craft Barn with Neil Walker.  Class 2 is on Sunday and at the moment my mum tells me I am going!

In all it is a set of four classes to get you started and if the first one was anything to go by, a wonderfully painty, inky, experience.  The journal is A5 landscape and spiral bound.

8x8 seems huge Jennie but you do fill up the pages well.  Think I might do a square one next time I buy one.  I know it isn't the same thing but I do like to do square cards.

Vonny I cannot tell you what joy it is to have a journal that without any bother opens out flat Laughing   Still, I am sure we will be pleased with ourselves when we have filled our little books.  

Mickie x

I am loving doing my books the only problem with books that don't open flat is trying to stamps on the page.

I am going to continue with my tiny book with the aim to fill it, using alternate 2 page layouts as this helps prevent ink transferring etc. no idea how many more pages I have got to go but it is filling up nicely now

Lovely page, Mickie.  Here is my January challenge.  I decided to cut up a pad of watercolour paper I found in my stash to make a 6x6 book.  I like to use loose pages and then bind them together at the end.

A lovely page Margaret.  yes loose leaf pages work well.  I had a play with some new inks yesterday in mine and it came out rather dark, so I'll have to try and use it for something!

No problem, Sarah.  Here it is - I took it inside the Flower Pavilion at the Chelsea Flower Show.  I blurred the background with my photo editing programme to make the flower stand out a bit better.  Margaret

Love your photo Margaret.

Thank you all for your lovely comments everyone. I stamped the image onto tissue paper, coloured it in with DI Markers and pasted it in using mat medium.

Jennie, this technique gets over the problem of a too dark background.

Mickie x
