Doodling Your Way...

I'm really enjoying the online lessons in '21 Secrets'.  This journal spread was inspired by the lessons of Cathy Bluteau.  It involves using collage and doodle and it was a lot of fun to pull out some of the little stickers, homemade washi tape, etc. to add some extra layers.  Some of the flowers came from beautiful napkins I've collected over time, as well as a birthday card my Mom gave me this year.  I wish that you could buy those beautiful napkins individually instead of having to buy a whole pack.  They often have such pretty flowers on them and they're perfect for collage!  I've also started collecting interesting elements from flyers and magazines...so much easier than having to store the entire magazine!

  3. I love it! Think I'll have to check out the 21 Secrets lessons.
    I agree about the napkins. I'll have to check out what I have later. Maybe I could mail you some.

    1. Thanks Maricella. You'll enjoy Cathy's class. I'm planning to do all of them and then probably revisit my favourites a second time.

  5. Why not host a napkin swap? Everyone buy a package then send all but one to you with postage paid envelope for returned assortment.

    1. What a good idea Mary! I think I will! I'll have to figure out the logistics since the postage paid return envelop only works if the swappers are in Canada but I'm sure I can figure something out.
