Color Blast || my Grey Matter

Well here it is: my last post about the Color Blast project. Here is a flip through of my Grey journal. I love it so much. Everyone gave it a feminist/women/anatomical/magical feel and those are some of my very favorite subjects so I am just so happy with this journal.

Doing a long-winded collab like this is wonderful and especially when it is complete. We were lucky that no journal got lost or destroyed in transit! 2017 was definitely a year of collabs for me. I am looking forward to slowing down on that front in 2018.

Please take a look at eveyone's completed journals by clicking their names: Riet, Lauren, Julia, Moriah, Lauren and Sarah. Thank you all for making Grey Matter so special!

Get Messy season of Nature || 01

A brand new Season is upon us! The Season of Nature starts now. I was feeling a bit ambiguous about it at first but I think that I will get my groove soon enough.

My first page is an introduction of sorts. It's the first page of my journal. I went with the Queen of Nature prompt.


One of the background papers (on the top) is the result of my tutorial for making the Witch's Brew. This lovely hue of purple blue comes from the red cabbage ink I made.


Purple isn't a color I usually use, but it has a nice magical feel to it. And how cool is it that a shade of purpleis Pantone's color of the year for 2018!?


My second spread is in response to Jules's be the element prompt. I really liked being fire here.


I started with fluid acrylics and then I burned the bottom of the pages.


Jaimee sent along some information on alchemists and different types of fire and I was really interested in the notion of Secret Fire. One that is ecternal to us, surrounds us and ever present.


I definitely want to harness some of its power these days.


The gold fluid acrylic is so inviting! I really enjoyed using this medium and will try to play more with the ones I have.


Here's a look at Missandei checking out my burning pages!

V's Daily Diary || November

Wow, I never thought I would get to November with this project. It feels so close to done! Even with travelling, guests and deadlines, I've stuck through it. It's already really cool to look back on. Here's a look at November 2017:








One thing that changed for me is that I don't stress anymore if I'm not up to date. I did this month in two sessions and that is ok. I used to fret about not remembering what happened that day but then I realised I have Instagram to job my memory. Also it's not a big deal if you don't recall the exact date when something happened.









It's so chunky now. One month to go and that's it!!!

30 Days of Lists || December 2017

Itès that time of year again! December and all its documentable glory! It's also the time of year when we feel overwhelmed because there is a lot to do, lots of family to see, lots of food to prepare and eat and lots to put in albums. It's easy to get lost and sidetracked with all the options out there.

So this is where December's edition of 30 Days of Lists saves: lists are quick and easy, my notebooks house all the pretty Christmas ephemera I have in my stash and they make a great placeholder for those December feelings. Intrigued? Click here to find out more or use the 30 Lists button on the right sidebar.


So how will I list this year? I decided to try a new size for me: Traveller's Notebook size. I used a similar format for one of my travel journals and really liked it so I thought I'd give it a try this year.

Here's a look at the inside pages:




I used some papers from different collections I had on hand. I went with a mixed colour palette with some traditional colours and some unorthodox ones too! I love the result and I'm excited to start filling it in!




I'm curious as to what your approach to December documenting is. Please let me know your tips for keeping it simple in the comments.



Do you think you would ever try listing as a way of documenting December?
