Meanwhile, I am finally back to working on my journal now. Some of the elements for the first page were completed today. They were fashioned from drawings and cardstock cutouts. I plan to use a lot of mixed media elements and techniques, although they will be simplified examples in a lot of cases. I have to keep in mind that this is my maiden voyage and to not get carried away and frustrated. A lot of my next efforts at this are simply going to be gathering materials together that I want to use or think I might use.
