TYS Journal Pages Pt. 4

Yay more journal pages from the Tell Your Story class. I'm actually pretty proud of myself for doing one everyday and not falling behind!! I am running out of pages quickly in my journal though, I may have to start a new one. I decided last night after writing in my other journal that I was going to make a rant/things that annoy me journal. I felt this one is more artsy and the one I write in at bedtime (I call it my bedtime journal) is more of a happy journal. So I'm going to the store and going to get a nice BIG, (because there are so many things to rant about these days) black one for all the ranty stuff I want to get off my chest :) I was also thinking of getting a small one for all my secrets, one I would hide under the mattress!! LOL :D

When my garden was pretty, I took this pic last summer, then they died like 2 weeks later, I'm horrible with plants.. HORRIBLE!!

This pic I also took last summer, can you spot the spider???

I'm actually surprised this is the first time anything panda is in my journal!! I had to add the cuteness!!

This one was supposed to be 2 separate pages, a happy page and a sad one. But, I decided since I was running low on pages I was going to put them together. Top is happy, bottom... sad

I love the heart I embroidered on the pic, sooo cute!

I like the mix of yellow and white paint on this one. First time trying it out.

I love the layered look of a bunch of different patterned papers. I think it looks soooo pretty!!! I didn't follow the prompt look in class, I kinda went with my own thing on this one. Love how it turned out!!

How many journals do YOU have? Do you have them separated, Happy/Sad/Secrets, or is it a mix of all emotions?

Have a great weekend!!!


P.S. Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY if you haven't yet, and spread the word!! :D
