Anti Journal

I have completed another two pages in my journal. 
Page 005 is covered in the word, Achieve, written many times in several different styles and colours. There was no prompt for this page; it is just one of the blank pages at the front of the book that I intend decorating in one way or another, but I decided to number it anyway.

The second page, (007), I did using the prompt: 
Open an unwanted book at random and cut the first word from each line - Rearrange them

I added some Dylusions sprays to colour the page before I did any cutting. I think it looks quite pretty.
It took me hours to try and make some sense from the words I cut out, but it was actually fairly relaxing, whilst again watching some Downton Abbey (I think I'm addicted).

Here's a close-up but if you can't make out the words, they say,  

The securities young Frank despatched to Castlewood represent the studies which the firm would gladly bid for at three fourteen

I glued down the words, glued strips to the sides of the page and I also weaved a couple of strips just for fun. 
Then I decided I wanted to add some stamped words and was quite pleased when the first one I came across was a quote by Marcel Proust in the Travel set from Rubber Dance Stamps; it just seems to fit some how. 

I'm looking forward to seeing what Carolyn does in her, Wreck This Journal, journal, this week. I'm so glad some of you popped over there from here last week. It was an awesome post she wrote wasn't it? 

Well until next time, thank you for coming by and any comments you leave are most welcome and much appreciated.

Ta Ta for now ((hugs)) :o) Mo x


  1. Good that you are still having fun! Keep it up! Hugs, Valerie

  2. What a coincidence, yesterday I was also creating while watching Downton Abbey. I don't think it's reached the addiction state for me yet, but my friends keep telling me how great the show is, so I decided to watch it this year.

    Your journal pages look like they are lots of fun to do. I especially like the one with old book paper. Rearranging the words reminds me of playing with magnetic poetry.

    1. We are watching DA on Sky tv, from the beginning. I like being able to watch more than one episode at a time :D I don't generally watch much tv at all, but I am enjoying this programme.

      I'm glad you like the pages. I had to Google Magnetic Poetry as I had never heard of it. And now I think I may need to buy it. What fun it seems to be. ((hugs))

  3. I do really love the idea of an anti journal :-P I might try this myself one day!

  4. Mo, I am loving your anti journal. It's cool that you are adding your own extra stuff to the prompts. That mojo is returning.

  5. It is lovely that you are having such a fun time with your anti-journal Mo and I love that wonderful quote you used too! Hugs, Anne xx

  6. You really are going for it Mo and having so much fun.
    I think the book page word rearrangement is really good. I bet you could make a story up xx

    1. Thank you Lynn. My imagination isn't that good, to make a story, but you sure could! :o) xx

  7. Missed this one, so sorry Mo! I love what you did with the lines of first words, totally awesome! Liking your Anti Journalling very much:-) xxx

    1. Many thanks MoH. I'm so glad you're feeling better :o))

  8. That sounds like a fun page. Looks great! I love the weaving you did too. Have a great day Mo. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate every one of them ((hugs)) :-))
