Journal Project 2015

I mentioned in a previous post that I was participating in a journal exchange with 6 of my wonderful and talented 'muses'.  The journals have now returned to their respective owners.  Was a great project to be a part of.  I did a lot of experimenting with materials and techniques.  Was always exciting to receive the new journals, but also a challenge.  How would I interpret the individual themes that were chosen by my friends, what materials would/could be used?  So many choices!!  Some ideas came immediately, others longer!  Most journals took a couple of weeks to complete.  I incorporated lots of different elements - flaps, tags, mini books and pockets to name a few.  I have posted photos of the final 5 journals below.  Apologies for some of the picture quality.  A few pages were hard to scan with all  the elements on them! Hope you enjoy them.
