Collaged Journal Page

Last Saturday the hubby and I went by boat over to the heart of the local motorcycle rally. You might have read my post about this. (Bike Week).  We docked and then went for a little walk around the "festivities". While checking it out,  I picked up this free brochure and used it to make this page in spring-summer scrap journal. This is more of a memory journal so my page is just that-
My scrap journal isn't laying flat any more so I am leaving some of the edges visual. Otherwise if I crop it down to just the collage, the page looks really strange.
I am also linking up to Art Journal Journey since I included a map, which is his month's theme.  This month is hosted by the talented Mary.

And I have a second journal page today which I am linking up to Moo Mania. The new theme is anything based  this beautiful photo collage by Valerie.
I am also linking up to Paint Party Friday, hosted by  Eva and Kristen.



So the good new is exams start today and tomorrow is it with the kids. Yup, I am ready, even though I have a bunch of stuff to do between now and Monday.
But summer break is almost here!
Now I just need to keep my eyes on the prize and keep thinking positive. It is almost here.
(Good thing, too. And its not the kids-they've been mostly really great so far.)
Have a great day and thanks for visiting.

Lots of lovely work today, love the journal pages, both are gorgeous. It's a good idea to really scrap about what you are up to. Thanks for joining us at AJJ and MM&M, and thanks for liking my photo!
Have fun at school, and you're nearly there now, just a couple of days....Hugs, Valerie

Aren't you glad you picked up a FREE brochure rather than buying an expensive patch to make this page? And it is probably even more lovely than having just the patch. This is a wonderful journal page, and I can relate to pages no longer lying flat.

That's a very energetic MM&M page, too. I could feel the energy even as I saw the calm of the flowers and butterfly. Great juxtaposition.

I can feel how ready you are to get the flock out of school and leave it behind for the summer.

Great pages, both of them. Your motorcycle page is a real keepsake. You can look back in years to come and remember the fun you had there. Have a wonderful summer.

Your scrap page is wonderful!!! I really need to do this more often. I have great intentions with little follow through. You are almost there with your summer break and then the fun begins ;)

Two wonderful pages! I love motorcycles and scooters, we watched a ride-out today go past our house, they were on the way to a rally. I love Valerie's collage of photos and the page you have created has captured the wonderful vibrancy, love it! Not long to go now, the summer break will soon be here for you to enjoy! Have a fab weekend :-)

So nice that you could take this brochure and then create with it. Sounds like a good time. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Excellent memory keeper of a good excursion. It has come out very well. Good luck with the end of school year.

Love your sky magic. Haven't touched my journal. By boat is the only way to see the motorcycles, no driving up there this time of year! xox

You inspire me with your journal pages. I must try this but there never seems to be enough time.
