The book is just a hard backed one I picked up in Hobbycraft, nothing special although the paper is thicker than most, a bit like watercolour paper - it cost about £3.99 I think.
I lost track of the ink pads, inks and acrylic paint I used 'cos I mixed 'em up a bit.
The sentiment/phrase is from a fabulous set I bought at Flutterbys the other week whilst there with Sam and Mo. It's called 'Art Phrases' by Creative Expressions - sadly they only had the one left otherwise it would have made a super Playground prize.
There are 10 'phrases' in the set which are on plain grey rubber and of course had to be cut apart and trimmed. I don't store my sentiments in files, they stay in their bags - and full sets of rubber ones are often tricky to sort through and find the one you want, unless you can easily read backwards of course.
So this is what I did:
Not my finest hour but, I'm gonna keep the phrase I used firmly in mind - and perhaps something wonderful WILL happen if I keep playing with the journaling. As Sarn says, it's very therapeutic!
