My Layout in Gail's Aussie Traveling Journal

I have finally finished working in Gails beautiful journal. The title of her journal is 'DAYS GONE BY". With this double spread I have tried to blend the outdoors with the indoors with the background colours I chose to recall my childhood where I would be out on my bike riding around all day with friends and I would always put some food in a brown paper bag and place it in my bike basket, for when I was hungry or to share with friends. On the right side, I was recalling our watching television which was a black and white set. We were allowed to watch about an hour in the evenings and my two sisters and myself loved watching Skippy, The bush Kangaroo. While we watched the telly, mum would be putting our hair in rags, to curl our hair...and we would sleep with them in. It was so uncomfortable but made beautiful ringlets in our hair. Thank you.



Taking up the 2016 ICAD Challenge

Thought I would like to try the Index Card A Day (ICAD) Challenge that is facilitaed by Daisy Yellow. This is their annual challenge, this being the 6th.The pictures below show my first 6 ICADs.

I have process videos on You Tube if you feel inclined to watch. My channel is my name. You are also given prompts but so far I have chosen my own. It runs over a period of 61 days and I think I will do my own until I need help with prompts.
