I bought this journal for 29 cents at a junk store. I think it is hand made. I used it to make a sort of loosely organized visual journal for my Mom using my image transfer method. It was more difficult than I expected as the paper was rather fragile.

Sorry for the uneven angles of the scans the journal was an awkward shape for my scanner.

It is pretty simple really. I print my photos on t-shirt transfer paper and just iron them onto the paper. Nothing to it...but it gives an effect a bit like a polaroid transfer - especially if you iron them on to something where they don't stick real well...many possibliities actually...

That's a great effect.  I'd never thought of using t-shirt transfer paper to add a picture to a journal... but now I'm inspired by how well yours turned out and I have too many ideas.  I'm definately going to try it.

If you ever teach a yodeling class, probably the hardest thing is to keep the students from just trying to yodel right off. You see, we build to that.
