spring journal.

here's something i've been doing lately and intend to continue for each coming season -

i made it out of random bits of things i found throughout my house - two pieces of cardboard from a box of granola bars that i covered in magazine pictures for the front and back cover, eight index cards for the pages, and embroidery floss and duct tape to hold it all together. 

i added in bits of lace, fortune cookie fortunes, quotes, whatever inspired me at the moment.

a few pages also have some instagram photos that i printed out and glued in. i was also fond of pressing and drying flowers, as well as doing small watercolors on extra scraps that i had laying around.

another favorite page of mine - these two pages are quite blue - the dress is hand drawn (one of the few fashion pictures i've attempted) and there's also a polyvore up in the corner.

great things to put in journals - poetry, quotes, magazine cutouts, drawings, photography, leaves, flowers, fabric, paint chips, tissue paper, lace, feathers, clothing tags, string, old maps, sheet music, ticket stubs, stamps (postal, rubber, or otherwise), the possibilities are nearly endless...

this is great for whenever i need some inspiration or just want something cool to look at.

enjoy and stay creative.

The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
