Favourite Pages yet!

Hey guys, I couldn't stay away too long, I am excited to show you my next pages!
Here is a spread about secrets and events last year
And here is my favourite double page spread! I wanted to do a layout about my room, where i work and sleep, but when I took photos, I found they woudnt fit on a double page spread. I wanted them all in a line, so I made a foldout page!
I used poster paint, salmon and blue and white, which is a combination I wouldnt usually put together but did so on a spur of the moment thing! I stamped the pages with an intricate hand carved stamp I won in a textiles competition last year, with white paint. I glued down the photos and added my journalling and doodles :) I am so pleased with these pages! I feel like this journal is becoming my own, inspirational and personal book that I can be proud of. Lots more paint to come I can assure you :)
I glued down two pieces of cardboard at the edge of the pages that met in the middle, after I taped the extra pages on to the others with masking tape (this way I could paint over it easily). After I had finished, I tied it up with a piece of wool
I have a very busy weekend ahead of me which consists of working, travelling, partying and BBQ! So not all bad, but I don't think I will have time to journal!
Here is a WIP page which I hope to do Saturday afternoon after work, so hopefully you will here from me then!
Have a great weekend guys,
Katie
