I decided to make a journal a sort of a diary. I added paint with an old credit card (my favourite way).
I used stencils and masks with white paint. Next step was spritzing with Mica Sprays. Then I stamped and used a letter stencil for January. I have punched some squares which will be the next step.

 One side of my desk. I recently added another tier to my blending tool spinner and bought some inkpad storage from a friend. I could do with at least another 2.
 I managed to adhere some of my punched squares before the children came. School holidays means I am baby sitting a 2 year old GD and  a 10 year old GS. The problem that comes with this is the little one wants to do what her big brother is doing. He is making a puppet theatre so I gave him paints and a box which granddad had altered. The little one had a water brush and paint and an apron that drowned her.
A good time was had by all. Then the little one found her cousins were going ice skating. Scroll down to see how well she did.
Yasmine ice skating in Lytham St Annes.
I will post photos of our puppet theatre when we have finished it. We have made finger puppets and I bought some on Ebay as well.

OMGOSH...the ice skating picture is just precious! I've never seen the penguin helpers before, but then I haven't been ice skating in years. Much better than having adults skate around bent over holding the little ones up!

Great looking journal! Are the squares decorative or is there a plan for them?
