This is GORGEOUS! When you move out, and need to paint over it, I would say don't forget the primer. Primer generally makes it a LOT easier to get the colour you want, and gives the new paint a better base. It should cover this up. (Though I don't think it should ever be covered up! :[ It's too pretty.)
Oh man! What a cute idea! This would be really cool for the nerd in your life that you just don't know what to give! Example, this gave me the best idea for one of my good friends. She's got a great sense of humor, so I poke a little bit of fun at the fact that she's a little nerdy. Thanks! :]
Explain to your new man that your old man WAS a part of your old life. When you're done with all of your ex's pages, then it's the end. It's kind of liberating, in my opinion, to scrap someone out of your life. [Pun intended.] Consider his pages your history. It's not like you'd go back and throw out pages with other exes, right? If you find a picture with the two of you that you're not including...tear it in two, right down the middle! Finally, start new pages for your new guy. :] Then he'll know that it's not an emotional thing, it's a "remembering the past for all that it was" thing. :] That's what I'd do, anyway.
I really like how you listed what you used, instead of just showing the [very wonderful] finished product! :] It helps people like me, who want to start but have no clue how, get a little more inspired. Thanks
I have to say, your visual journal is my favourite so far! I'm super addicted to them, but I love how clean and neat yours is. (I can be kind of OCD. lol) I really love the "About a Boy" page. That's a SUPER cute boy! (Sorry, my inner 12 year old girl is showing.) Thanks for inspiring me a little though. :]
