"I'm a Bad Dancer"


Here are a few photos from a couple of journal pages I have been working on lately. They are done in "File Folder Journal #4".  This is quickly becoming my favorite journal to work in of all time.  I really like the overall somewhat gritty appearance of this journal.


As it fills up, it is beginning to develop a rather soft and worn look from working in it and handling it. Even the pages feel good to the touch ... they make a wonderful sound when they are turned. That all really appeals to me and gives the journal the feeling that it has history.


This is a first for me, as far as I can remember.  I have never used "stickers" in a journal spread, but in an attempt to force myself to use up the mountains of "stuff" that I have, I thought it would be fun to try them.

Lovely pages. Having the pages feel good is, indeed, a major element of journal pleasure. I totally know what you mean about working your way through mountains of unused supplies.

Ingrid, I love your style! You do a bit more "real" journaling than I do in my journal, mine is mostly just "art," but I do love what you do! I came across you from the fabulous Julie Fei-Fan Balze!! Look forward to seeing more of your inspiration!
