First step- create a background.
I painted the pages with white gesso for a textured base, then smooshed around some acrylic paints until I was happy with the effect.
Next step- decorations!
I stamped some bare trees across the bottom of the pages (Crafty Individuals stamps), in Stazon black and Teal, and added some spots by sponging through sequin waste in Distress Inks (Scattered straw and Faded jeans).
Excuse the 2 little squares, I'd started sticking them on before I remembered to take a photo.
Step 3 - Journal space
Like most crafters I have lots of odd bits of offcuts that I'm saving to use on something- well now I've used lots of them!! I ended up with 1.5" squares. i'd have liked larger, but they wouldn't fit......
So..... that's it. What do you think? I just need to fill in the 31 squares now. Next thing is to number them, and fill in yesterday's square.....can't wait!
