Just a few new journal pages



This is a spread done in "My Extraordinary Life" journal. While I really enjoy the size and shape of this journal, I am having trouble with the terrible paper in it. I have a Zutter hole puncher and thought I could make some new pages for it, but unfortunately, the hole sizes are different. The next time I work in this journal I will trim the page back to about 1/2" from the holes and "tip-in" a new page made of better paper. I have no idea why I didn't think to do that earlier!

Beautiful pages Ingrid. Great idea to tip-in with better paper. I hate getting a journal with paper that just doesn't 'do-it' for me!
Hugs and blessings

Hi Ingrid! I love looking at your art journal pages! They're always so much fun. I was just wondering how long it takes you to fully complete a page (or two)?

How long does a journal page take?

That's kind of hard to say. I rarely sit down and work on a page from start to finish ... I'm thinking I need to either write a blog entry explaining it all or make a video I can put on my blog ...I'll give that some thought and if I have some time I might just do that! Thanks for the idea!

Dont you just hate it when you find a great journal with lousy paper? But it certainly does not affect the quality of you work! These pages are fabulous! See you in March!
