Creative Project: Altered Journal Round Robin

Five Favs Friday will be back next week. Today, I wanted to share the latest collages I did for the altered journal round robin. This was the 2nd round & I had Mary's journal. 

Love the bright yellow she used
for her cover
And her dedication page to the 3
of us. Brilliant! I told her that I wished
I had thought of doing that. I will
add it in when I get my journal back
at the end of this project. 
Her first spread. I just adore her color scheme
So vibrant.
Her 2nd spread. The ink sketch on the left is
amazing. I would never have the patience for
all the detail. 
Here is my first spread. I used paper
because that's been my focus lately.

A close up of the left side
A close up of the quote which was a clear sticker 
The right side. 
For the 2nd spread, I used gesso, paint, & washi tape.
It felt good to take a break from using paper
exclusively. I also added in some collaged stamps,
stickers & this genius product for those of us who don't
sew but like the look of it. 
A close up 

Have a wonderful weekend!

This post just makes me panicky. I have 13 pages of sketchbook project to complete TONIGHT.

Tell me again, how come you're not doing SKP? It's perfect for you. Next year?

Danielle said...

@Linda-13 pages?! Good luck! I am overcommitted as it is so no SKP for me. And I have to admit that I wouldn't want to give it back :)

Hi Danielle...I like your pages you are doing for the project...very industrious. I just got a Xyron machine(the smallest one)'s great for sticking down paper without any mess. I got mine on sale at It was interesting seein my journal pages...I forgot to take photos before I sent it off and I'd forgotten what I'd

@Mary - Thanks for your kind words. I have the smallest Xyron too but I haven't used it yet. I will send you the pics.
