Round Robin Journal 5 - Kim's Journal

August already! Journal 5 already!! Where's this year disappearing to?! The fifth journal that arrived for me to work in belonged to Kim ... and it was gorgeous, full of colour and quirky touches!

She's chose my favourite colour - red - for her journal, along with pink and orange. 

These are the pages I made for her (apologies for the slightly poor pictures, they were taken in a hurry to scrape the postal deadline!)
 I started with some pretty sunflower images and added a painted doily, some red spotty washi tape (my current favourite thing!), and other collage elements.
 I stitched a simple red heart onto brown paper and found a scrap of playing card - I felt the Queen of Hearts was suitable for Kim! :-)
 I also made a tag using some tea bag paper - I've been experimenting recently! - and a little orange button.
I've waved Kim's journal goodbye now but am looking forward to the next one arriving soon - this time the colour scheme will be black, tan and white. Loving the diversity of this project!


  1. Wasn't this a cheerful book to work in?
    Your pages remind me of a beautiful Valentine
    for a very special friend...
    which it is I think!
    Valentines aren't just for February:)

  2. Kim's journal is amazing.
    I love what you have added as well.
    Queen of hearts is perfect.

  3. Be still my fluttering heart!!! Your pages are just oozing with happiness and colors I love! I love that your pages remind me of one of my favorite days of the year!! The daisy, the orange button, the little happy flowers on tag, the Queen of hearts... your pages have totally captured my heart!! Thank you for creating these pages just for me, so much to LOVE!!!!

  4. Angie, I'm in love with these pages! I know you like red as I do, and you have outdone yourself with vibrancy and happy summery touches! So beautiful!

  5. Angie this spread is so sweet! I count 3 hearts so it most definitely was made with a dash or two or 3 of love. Red is my favorite color, as well. Vibrant, full of energy and sexy. I love the playing card and that you used the tea bag for the tag oh and the cute little orange button.
