Delight in Life....

It's finally finished! My life journal that has six tabs and all custom pages. Well worth the work. I resolved a long time ago to stop buying the pre-made inserts for my organizer. They never quite fit what I needed. So I made stuff to fit me. Now, I need to finish the "forever in the works" family cookbook/scrapbook idea that I have been milling over for the last couple of years. The cookbook is not coming into focus like I want it too. Still sketching......

As you can tell in this picture, I am scanning everything due to a camera malfunction and limited funds right now. So the edges are out of focus, but you can make out the outline of tabs and see the binding pretty well. I have posted pictures of all the items in the Life Journal in a new album called what else but Life Journal. Each tab divider has a different hand painted flower and color corresponding tab. I have included all of my instructions with each of the pictures. Please feel free to ask questions!

I also have to share my first attempt at alcohol inks and
glossy paper. I love seeing what happens with the inks. I grabbed everything that was shiny and applied inks. I am still working out the kinks of application. Who knows what I will use this sheet for, but I will find something..... Enjoy!
