Greetings!!! Is everyone surviving the holiday rush?
I just finished taking 30 Days in Your Journal with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer...it finished up Nov. 30th and I was so sad. I really did journal every day and posted it on Flickr. What was I going to do? I was on a roll ...but Julie came to the rescue with an idea of 25 Days Until Christmas journaling prompts.
So with my trusty HELMAR Adhesives and the awesome Faber Castell products I set to work. I'm pleased to share with you what I've created up to today...the 18th of Dec.
Cover Page: What is interesting about this page was I used a catalog cover but I did not use a Helmar adhesive to adhere it to my page...I know as I hang my head in shame. You can see that the cover did not adhere flat, it wrinkled here and there...lesson learn...ONLY USE HELMAR!
Days 1-5: I found these great cookie pictures in the Dec. 2011 edition of Food Network Magazine and just knew I had to use them...this time I adhered these pictures with HELMAR Decoupage and Craft Paste. The difference...no buckling! The journaling was completed with my trusty Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen.
Days 6-10: More catalog pictures adhered the correct waay with Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste and journaling done with Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen.
Days 11-18: On this page I knew I was running out of time and energy but I didn't want to give up. I searched through my stash and found these great journaling circles...I've had them for awhile and I can't tell you who made them. This time I pulled out the Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens in great colors to complete the journalling.
I hope you enjoyed my journal pages. By using the best products from HELMAR and Faber-Castell it makes the ability to create so easy.
