Decorated journal cover

Hello and welcome. I hope you have had a fantastic Christmas and that your New Year is amazing.

I have decided to to start Documented Life Project 2015 and watched Cover Story by Lorraine Bell which inspired me to cover my new Dyan Reaveley journal. 

I will use this journal for a new mixed media challenge I will be hosting starting on the 20th January. The theme each month will a be sign of the zodiac starting with Aquarius. You can interpret the theme however you wish and use any materials. 

To enter you must follow my blog and add your creation to the linky at the bottom of the relevent post. I will use to choose the winner, who will receive 3 DecoArt products. Each month there will be a new prize. The runner up, which will be chosen, will be invited back as a guest for the following month.

I do hope you will be able to play along. I will be demonstrating DecoArt products and putting them through their paces. In some cases the product I use will be provided by DecoArt however, my opinion will be my own.

Anyway on to my project.

You can watch it here

  6. Great idea Debs! Unfortunately I can't watch videos at the moment. The lappy is playing up & I'm a techno numpty. It really needs a good sort out by a lovely IT lady I use but will have to wait till I can book her. I won't be able to join in partly through time constraints but also because I don't journal. However I shall watch your exploits with great interest and wish you lots of success,

  7. The journal cover looks great Deborah, fab layering of colours. I'm off to watch part two now........
