Apparently a magpie is a bird that collects odds and ends, bits of the pretty and sometimes valuable things to decorate its nest, often stealing them from unsuspecting people. Magpies are not exceptionally pretty, but exceedingly intelligent.
Magpie Journals are junk journals with a fancy name. A hodgepodge of just about anything that is not truly garbage gathered together and stored in an book.
Well I didn't steal for my journal but I did collect a good bit of odds and ends. I also wrote, stamped and colored my pages.
|I had to have my gnome to greet my partner. I think he is cute.|
|Jokes and a bit about me.|
|This was actually my 1st layout. No Magpie but at least a bird.|
|The background print here added to the chaos. Loved it.|
|"Play Time" says it all.|
|A mixture of recipes.|
|The pages were printed with a calendar of sorts. I went with it.|
|A picture of me and space for my partner's pictures.|
|Some pages I just added glitz and bling to the existing layout|
|When comparing my journal to others, |
I seem to have a lot of open space.
My art work is like that too.
|The bouquet to the left opens to a scratch and sniff. |
Just another dimension to my journal.
|This and the next set of pages demonstrate I am not consistent in my open space.|
|By gluing pages together and making doors|
I added a bit of interaction.
I would hate for my journal to be boring.
This has been a long post, mostly pictures but, I hope you have enjoyed it. If you have any ideas for improvement or otherwise please drop a comment. Thanks.
