Learn Something New Everyday 2010

I'm sooooo excited!! It's that time of year again!!

This will be my 3rd year taking {Shimelle's} Learn Something New Everyday September class. The first year I didn't complete but have kept my notes & finished pages altogether & it's great being able to look back on them. :)

Last year, I did much, much better & scrapped & blogged everyday! In my left~hand sidebar is a slideshow of my completed fat!! book.. Brilliant! I loved every minute & made lots of new crafting friends along the way. :)

This year I have decided to take a completely different approach... oooh, the longing to buy some pretty papers has been nearly overwhelming!! especially seeing so many pretty front covers.. This time I have chosen to work in a Moleskine journal & have been busy with the Gesso.. I am fairly new to art journaling & always feel really nervous blogging my pages! soooo, my LSNED posts might not appear quite as often this time around.

Here is my title page/s & I think I've already convinced myself I don't like it... that little voice in my head won't shut up!! I really need to take him to one side & think about Gessoing him to a page in my journal once & for all!! hehe..

Perhaps, I should just nip out now & buy a lovely pad of papers...........

Thanks for calling by my blog & a BIG Thank if you get the chance to leave a comment. Have a great day. Hugs, Gez.xx
