..........I'm out of it. I started to work on a new journal and it wasn't working. I couldn't decide what was wrong and then I suddenly realised that I was out of my comfort zone. An expression one hears and uses quite often but I think I now fully understand what it means. This is how it happened.
I have made several journals lately and they have all been in my usual muted earth tones. Entirely happy. I decided as it was summer it would be fun to do something a little more colourful. First mistake. I made this
I made a page
Analysing my mistakes for future reference. 1. Decide on the cover when the signatures are finished. 2. Have a vague idea but don't be too specific at first, let it grow. 3. Don't try to second guess exactly what you are going to need, leave room for serendipity.
I am going to try and continue, mainly because I have done so much work so far, usually the journals take over and decide how they want to be so I live in hope.
Two whole weeks of glorious warm weather, loving not to have to put on my usual many layers.
