I made a journal from a file folder. It has pockets inside to put your artwork or anything else you would want to do. I chose to do positive affirmations with some Zentangle inspired art and stamps to decorate each tag for inside the pockets. The journal folds out into four sections. There are several you tube videos you can find that show you how to make these.
I decorated the inside and outside with coordinating vintage style design papers. I also added some stickers and bling. All the edges were distressed by sponging ink. This is still a work in progress.
I have made some of the tags to go inside. I used vanilla cardstock, then rubbed three colours of ink onto my craft mat , spritzed the ink with water, then rubbed the tags into the inks to colour the backgrounds. Then I wrote the positive affirmations and did some zentangling or stamping to decorate the tag. Here are four that I have made so far.
I'm working at keeping all my thoughts positive and I contemplate each affirmation as I tangle.
Happy Tangling! :D
