The Lil Journal Project | Day 36

Oh my…..I’ve neglected The Lil Journal Project!  Getting back on track here…..I’ll be posting there here and there….it IS an ongoing project until the end of time (at least my time).  It’s never too late to start either! Start from Day 1 or do the days randomly (you can find them day by day and click through to the full post from Pinterest if that’s easier).

Creative Doodling on Photos

As part of the Lil Journal Project: another technique to work on in your journal this week: doodling on photos!  A few of these techniques come from my friend Stephanie Corfee’s  book: Creative Doodling and Beyond. Like drawing interesting borders:

Try adding photos into your journal and embellishing the photos with borders….even if it’s just a few lines:

Illustrate a typical day or week in your journal.  What’s the weather like?  What do you do hour by hour? How much time do you spend in the car or in front of the TV?  Do you sit down for dinner with your family?  Keep a little calendar…..if you decide to do an entire week it doesn’t have to be from the same week. Just fill in a day when you feel like documenting it! CONTINUE READING

Packing Tape Image Transfers

How to make image transfers with packing tape via lilblueboo.com

I love image transfers.  It’s something I’m always using in my journals but there are so many other fun uses for them.  All you need to make a transfer is a photocopy of an image or words and packing tape.  You can also use printouts from a laser printer or magazine pages. Inkjets will not work because they are not heat based toner.  So take some photos to the copy machine or tear some pages out of your favorite magazine to get started.
