Colorful backgrounds are a must for my journals. By now you MUST know the important role of color in my life.
I usually don't have qualms about what I enter in my journals.
There are those moments when I have to do the "scribble" in my journal! This is reserved for those rare moments when I DON'T want to make a horribly awkward situation public knowledge. I like to throw in phrases that I've cut out of magazines to add punch to my pages.
Sometimes all you need are a few phrases and a great pic to say it all! I created this page when I went a little overboard at the stamping convention. I know I'm not the only one who's been there, done that!
Sometimes I know what I want to say and other times I don't. Sometimes it doesn't matter to me that someday someone will read it and other times I do. You can probably tell which pages go with my do's and don'ts. I'm a great scribbler which works perfectly for my "I don't want anyone to ever read what this says" entries. I also have a great stash of phrases for those days when I know what I feel, but don't want to write about it. Teamed with a great pic is all I need to make this kind of entry complete. And of course, colorful washes of color always help to make an interesting page.
