Currently Crafting: Collage Book

I'm working on a collage book/journal right now. I decided I would do it only for myself. Meaning - it doesn't have to match, follow the current trends, it doesn't have to be pretty enough to blog about, etc. I just have to feel good about each piece I add to the collage. Here's what I have so far.
Although these are totally in-progress and not finished results, I can't say I'm really loving the direction these are headed in. But I'm okay with that. The point of this is to explore and have fun, not to have a picture perfect end product. I gotta tell you, it's hard for me to make things without planning them and striving for a perfect outcome. Does anyone else have this problem or do you craft/create/design as free as a bird?

P.S. I'm happy to say that a DIY tutorial is developing from this project even though that wasn't my intention! ;)


  1. I love that you are making this journal especially for you! I always love when a DIY comes about when I least expect it. I do love my iPhone and instagram for that!

  2. Lovely collages! I've been doing mini collages lately. I have a hard time finding long spans of time to work on big projects so slowly gluing and building pages works pretty well!

    Can't wait to see the DIY!

  3. this is absolutely blog worthy- it looks amazing so far but most importantly, glad to hear you're just making it how you please. it's funny how blogging can sometimes make us lose touch of things a bit.
