O.k.- well, I know this should probably go in Reconstructed Papercraft- but for some reason I feel more comfortable on this board.  Here are two pages from my journal that I'm slowly working on filling.  I'm mainly using it to experiment with new techniquesw- or as a way to get new ideas down before they leave my head.  Wink  If you want to see more I'm adding them one by one to my blog- the link is in my signature.

Thanks for looking!  Sorry for the huge pics and crappy scanniness.

Well thank you!  And on a side note- I'm having trouble making things that don't involve something you sent me in your packages- the geisha page was made before our swap- but the second page has bits of paper from you init, I just got carried away with the paint Wink.  Also- I love cloth paper scissors now!

These are really nice. I like the cleanliness of the first one (it is an interesting combination of images, as well) and the build-up of layers in the second one. Is your journal a sketchbook with blank pages or is it an old book?

It's a hand made hemp and recycled paper book my sister sent me from Alaska, she bought it somewhere up there... I like using a book instead of blank pages, something about not being ables to close the book properly pleases me Wink.

More wonderful work from you CraftyImperfections. I tyoo like the idea of a book not closing properly. Makes me happy for some reason.
Very nice work.
