Here are some more Journal Pages that I have created with my journal kit. Thanks to Michelle for the great idea - I haven't had a chance to travel with it yet, but I have to travel for work in the next few weeks so it will be coming with me!

The photo didn't quite work out for this page, the frame and words came from a magazine and I used a piece of foil to create the mirror.

Don't forget to check out the blogs of other GPP Street Team members for some great journal kit and journaling ideas.

My first journal page completed with my new journaling kit. A lot of it is text, but I was brainstorming ideas for this project.

This month Michelle Ward's crusade is to create a journaling kit, so that you can journal on the go. This is a great idea for me, especially when I have to travel for work. To have a kit that I can just grab and it has everything that I need in it.

I'm using a scrapbooking tote, that I don't use for scrapbooking 'cause I have too much stuff. It's just the right size to hold my pencils, and my journal fits in it too if I need to, but it's a bit of a squeeze.

What's in the kit - a glue stick, sharpies, prismacolors, journaling words, scissors, stamp pad and stamps. I'm also checking out all the other street teamers kits for ideas of things to add to the kit.
p.s. thanks to the street teamer who explained how to use the hyperlink on blogger - it has made life so much easier!

I made a start on my altered book today - I made the front cover - it doesn't have a front door yet, Ineed a hinge to attach it. I'm happy with the progress so far.
Yes, I found the stamps that I couldn't find yesterday, in a box that I'm sure I checked about three times yesterday.

Little Houses and Altered Book

I've joined an altered book round robin with Colette and a group of other Australian artists titled Sense of Place, the idea was based on Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn's book In This House. So far I have constructed my book.

I'm not sure how I'm going to bind it yet, or for that matter how I am going to alter it. I think I am going to use the Raven/crow/black bird theme, if only I could find my raven stamps that I bought from Michelle Ward. You would think after 4 months in a new house you might be unpacked - not in this house!

Since I was playing around with the house theme - I created a row of little houses. Decorated using vintage ruler paper. It was just a bit of fun but I'm happy with how they have turned out.
