Quiet Nights Journal



I am finally getting around to posting the Quiet Nights journal from Viv's class, I started it last Saturday and finished it on Sunday. I was a little late in starting it, but I devoted the day to getting it done. I haven't written in it yet (hence the blank spots), I find that a completed journal is easier to write in. So I will start this weekend :) I wanted to share all the pages I made though first since I won't be sharing my actual writings.

I'll post the rest of the projects I worked on last weekend on Sunday's post, I wanted to devote this post to just my journal. I'm skipping confessions and panda obsession this week, sry!

It's pretty obvious what prompt is being used for each page :)
Escape is actually the first page I did, I used a postcard from a friend of mine who recently sent it to me from Hawaii :)


Close-up


I love all the colors in these 2 pages, they make my heart super happy :)


The Dream page I used stationary and the envelope it came in from a letter a friend wrote me, I love love it!


I can't wait to fill in the Secret page, the Really page is all the things that bother me or that I don't like. That will be an interesting one to fill out as well.


Spring Cleaning is things I want to clean out of my life, not necessarily negative. The Goals page looks so vintage, love it!


I am and I wonder page, the only pages I actually used pics of myself!


Super Hero page is going to be fun too, I know there are some powers I could use! I wrote you a letter page was fun to make, the page I used is a couple decades old so when I was folding it, it was crumbling, I had to tape all the corners.


The last 2 pages of my journal


This last page is my favorite, it was my first time embroidering on paper. I love love all the washi tape! so pretty!


Hope everyone enjoyed the sneak peek (I say sneak peek bc there is no writing in it yet) of my very FIRST art journal to be mostly completed.

Have a great weekend!

What are YOUR plans??

xoxo,
Lindsay
