It's time for our first challenge of the month over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge and, since it was my turn to choose, I chose to focus on including some details about something that you love - family, friends, chocolate, wine? it doesn't matter, but I wanted it to include some journalling.
All too often, I leave out the important details, because I struggle to incorporate journalling. I find it difficult to write onto a completed layout in case I 'ruin' it, but looking back at some older layouts recently (more on this soon!) I re-discovered the idea of adding notes around the edges - there's usually lots of white space on my layouts to do this and, of course, it doesn't detract from any of my design elements! Win!
For this little 6x8 layout that will find a home in my Project Life album for 2017 (I've started, finally, on Project Life. More on this soon too!) I decided to focus on my love of beading and of the beading community.
Journalling reads: For the last few years I've challenged myself with my beading and I love how much my skills have grown as a result. This year my challenge is to make one item from a beading that I own each month. I've been joined by over seventy beaders and I am loving the sense of community we share.
How do you incorporate journalling into your projects? Is it something you struggle with, or does it seem easy? Let me know your thoughts! x
