Some weeks ago, Marta Lapkowska was the guest artist at Wanderlust, encouraging us to use texture on our journal pages. To create texture on my page, I used texture paste, lace, paper flowers buttons, and other bits and pieces I found in my stash. I used various sprays to provide the colour.

Contrast (again!)

This journal page also uses contrast, but in a different way to the previous spread.

Tuesday, 12 December 2017


I am trying to catch up with my Wanderlust course. I am only about 6 weeks behind!

This journal spread is about using contrast, hence the black, straight(ish) lines against the lighter, swirling background.

Home-made Journal

I am really behind with Wanderlust now, but I have managed to complete week 26. The guest artist was Rae Missigman. She showed us how to make a journal using old large envelopes.

Here's my journal. Both the front and back covers are made from envelopes. You might get to see the inside when I start using it! It has three signatures inside, each bound within another envelope.
