Here are the signatures (groups of pages) for the Remains of the Day Journal that I showed last time. It's not too late to sign up, but sign ups are on hold while our self described "school marm" is off on an adventure. Info is on the link above. Anyway, what I love about Mary Ann's class is that I'm using up stuff I've saved for a long time but haven't had the right place for. This is the book for odd scraps of personal ephemera, not treasured collectible pieces. For example, the bird piece above is from a PapayaArts water bottle box that I cut up. The open space has the clear plastic still, so it will work as a see through pocket. On the right packet above, the outer cover is a plastic PapayaArt sleeve from some greeting cards I purchased. It's such nice, heavy plastic that it will make a great storage spot for other remains from my day. Here are some more pages that will serve as backgrounds for journaling/picture taking etc. Telling the story of my day in a visual diary form.
This spread has a vintage tag, a piece of a magazine advertisement for Earth Angels Toys (the red chair-not sure the artist, maybe Jennifer Lanne?),a scan of a calling card, scrap of fabric, new scrapbook paper, childrens writing paper, a magazine article with paint samples, an Addison Endpapers' business card, an old envelope piece, and a playing card cut up (the flower bouquet).
Are you seeing what I mean about the remains of the day scrap? No, I didn't say crap!
Some scrapbook paper, a security envelope (another thing new to me thanks to Mary Ann) with a bit of a Sabrina Ward Harrison gift card for Papaya Arts peeking through, an old picture from a magazine (wouldn't you love to know the caption?), and the inside of a crepe paper label.
A Sunset magazine tear out order card,music paper,scrapbook paper and plain green paper. Basically, I think you get the idea, using non-precious items to make background pages on which you can journal any way you choose. I am going to follow Mary Ann's lead and document my days with photos and notes etc. I'll keep showing you as the journal progresses. These pages are sure to change a lot.
Here's Mary Ann's sneak peek, (I love this video!):
