All week long I've been immersed in the artsy goodness of Kate Crane's section of the 21 Secrets class, Journal Soup. It's the perfect solution for those of us who tend to freeze up when faced with a beautiful new pristine journal, for fear of "messing it up."

For starters, we're not using journals at all. Instead she has us grabbing whatever bits and bobs are at hand, such as old manila folders and tags...

contact solution packaging and bits of paper and ephemera from our scrap buckets...

or those cardboard inserts that come in all sorts of merchandise.

We are trying out different techniques in each project, and using the "scraps" encourages us to be brave and to experiment. When done, each piece or "ingredient" gets added to our Journal Soup box/pot:

There's just no telling what amazing morsels you might create, once you start blending your ingredients!

Woohoo! This is absolutely fantastic! The art you have created just blows me away :-) Your colours are all so zingy! I can see it is my journal soup, but you have added your own twist too.
So glad you have enjoyed 21 secrets. Thanks so much for sharing.
