Circle Journal

I love circle journals. not only is it fun to create in them but I love seeing the creations from the other members. We normally have one going on the Charmed forum and here's one of my recent efforts. The theme was "Grandma's Recipe's". It's a desktop calendar type journal so the pages flip over.

My first page shows grandma cooking. I used Basic Grey papers and embellishments (June Bug) - Prima lace - borders cut with two Martha Stewart punches.

This fab image is Mo Manning. I was searching for a granny stamp and found this digi which was just perfect for the job. She is coloured in with Copic markers (must start writing colurs down for you).

Here is a huge cooking pot on the second page, that I again coloured in with my Copics. Behind the pot panel is a recipe that pulls out. I gave my grandma's soup recipe, which was out of this world. My mum made it even better but I can't quite master it.

You can see how I cut out grandma and mounted her on foam for a 3D effect. I cut table legs for the table and glittered edges distreetly with a little Stickles.

That's it for me today. Thanks for popping by xx
