Oh...take a deep breath. Your LV journal will be well accepted, I am sure.
I think you people are crazy with your little stories, but I enjoy the little journey along the way. It takes me to places that I might not ever see. Other than in your pictures with those cute little stuffies. A computer adventure, for sure.
They are fun to watch...and cute little stuffies, too. I don't often post there, as I did not join this round...but maybe I will in the future. When the weather warms and I can take mine hiking  Grin so everyone can see rural Tennessee.

Have not gotten back to my pages. I am a slave to my sewing machine. I need to try some of those art journal fabric ones. Is there a standard size for those? My pretty book is 9" x 9". Right now it is mostly paper, but I wouldn't care to toss in some fabric pages, either. Mine is a chunky style, so that could help cushion between stuff. I like adding beads and brads and grommet/eyelet things. With extra ribbons that knot on and hang out.

But I sure enjoy all the eye candy here on this board. It gives me inspiration and extra ideas for stuff. Thank you all for sharing!

Journal pages can be any size you want.  Mine happen to be 4x6 since I like to carry it in my purse or bag...some people like larger pages, some smaller...it is a personal choice.

I want to do LV this summer, too.  I think it would make me appreciate where I live more....and it would be fun to swap with someone in a different place....the adventures we could dream of!

A few pages I've finished lately.  They were inspired by Nerd Battle prompts, except for the last one, which I just did for fun.  The pretty background paper on that one is from alwaysinmyroom!  Grin  I can't decide if it needs words or not.

Great pages.

Lovelymiss, your cat is adorable. The rainbow background behind the hearts is very pleasing.

Teag, with so many lovely pages, you are going to convince me to make myself a technique journal. I have to try the wood carved look.

Renstar, your butterfly really sparkles! What did you use?

Oh, I love the coffee ring page. I love Oliver Jeffers (children's book author and illustrator) and he has a whole series of coffee ring art.

Everybody's pages are bright and inspirational.

I'm working on something but it's not a page - more on that tomorrow.

Dog gone you people with lovely handwriting....LovelyMiss  Grin I really like your pages.

How do you people do it? My handwriting is for the birds. I can trace well, and use rulers, and make accurate patterns from scratch. So it is not bad hand to eye coordination. Why won't my mind follow my hand...or vice versa? And make all the lovely florishes? I study different fonts...and know what I wish them to look like.

Do you pencil sketch first, and then fill in with inks? Maybe I just don't have the technique correct. But I hate my handwriting. And the more I spend typing on this box and not using snail mail...the worse it gets. I stress over filling out the cards for swaps. I wish for them to be long hand {personal text}, and special announcements. And have a hard time in some of my journals, too. I want them to be pretty.

But I feel they look like crud. I take my time with the words, but I still don't feel that they look nice. Any suggestions, other than telling me to zentangle all my letters?  Grin Those I can do.

Oh...and coffee rings are fun. Good job on spilling stuff all over  Roll Eyes Those look great! And your masking tape background? We did bottles like that when I was a kid. I think vases for Mother's Day...and hit them with shoe polish to burnish the edges. Sorry. Off topic, but it just brought a bit of nastalgia back to me  Roll Eyes

Oops. One more question. I keep hearing of this mole skin paper. {and I know it is not made of moles  Grin} What is the advantage over plain watercolor papers that I use? I have never tried it. Thanks! Can you still scrub it and rub it and rough it up? I often sand my works to give them extra texture for things.

stillatthetop moleskin journals are a brand- the paper is very thin, in order to use them for an art journal you first need to prep the page using gesso or another similar medium, without the prepping most wet mediums bleed though,ie. markers, paint, etc- if you don't prep the pages your pages you need to stick to colored pencils and pens
