Week 2 - Prompt: Black and white. I decided to have a look around to find some black and white images so that I could put together a collage. I found a paper bag that I had picked up from Scarthin Books, which I really love. I cut a section out and added that to the middle of the collage; so pleased to have Scarthin book shop image on my second week in January. I love the book shop it has a couple of floors and a nice vegetarian cafe plus a gift shop. Looking forward to being able to visit again, the shop is fairly local to me, next village down so fab to have something like this so close. www.scarthinbooks.com

I have covered up my documenting, my gosh don't want to frighten you all with what I get up to !! ( a lot of creative stuff with a pepper of ordinary life stuff). Being locked down is hard when you cant see your nearest and dearest when you want to, but we do have to look on the positive side of it all and use the time we have the best we can. Catch up again next weeks with the next weeks prompt and pages.....

WEEK 1....

2021 starts with a new journal - for 2021 I have repurposed a childrens story book from 1938, I loved the illustration on the the outside cover and internal covers. I put together different papars maninly mixed media and watercolour papers. The pages were bound and glued into the spine all ready for documenting and journalling. I have completed my first week/prompt which was hosted by Claire Leggett on 'Life Documented 2021' - use up what you have have. I put together a collage of fabric and papers with freestyle machine stitch. I added a tip in with 2 cards: 'More of in 2021' and 'Less of in 2021' I have started to fill those in: Less Covid, Less hoarding of things I dont need. More of ' Art and creativity', organising and throwing out anything that doesnt make my heart sing. I have posted a couple of images of the pages. My journalling pages are in progress and I guess I like to keep those private...

MY 2020 Journal final touches.....

A little festive journalling


Hello, I hope we are all beginning to get a little bit festive, we just have to keep with it, even with covid looming over us to provide us with a different type of christmas.

I havent written lately with any journalling information, I provided a prompt this week on Life Documented 2020 (you can find the link to the prompt and group via my website: Julieleggettart.com under the heading of journals.

I created a advent type of page, well a couple of pages with a few elements in them - I had fun and thats the main thing. The only thing that wasnt fun was the videoing; I have added the first video part one of the prompt; there are two more videos. Unfortunatley my phone kept running out of space and cut off the end of both 2 and 3 videos, even so I think you can still get the jist of the pages. Take a look you may want to gather some bits together and have a go yourself....why not!!
