Here's some completed pages - and yes, I did stick down the page spread I showed last week :)
(Inside the front cover)
Lift the flap...
(Next spread with several flaps!)
(No flaps on this one - just pasted whole page of Words of Wisdom from a copy of Harper's Bazaar - some great quotes!!)
(Inside the back over)
Realized I didn't show you the back of the journal last week...
I think that's enough photos for this week - I know Julia likes the posts to be short...
But I just want to point you to this week's Giveaway - a beautiful handmade sketchbook
You can find more photos and comments here. Leave a comment over there if you want to enter the draw...
Now to visit some crafty desks xx
These are so pretty ....ReplyDelete

If I wrote caligraphy as well as you, I would be a very happy person. As it is, I can barely read my own writing. Lovely pages. I'm with you. I love flaps and hidden messages or photos. Happy WOYWW from #1.ReplyDelete
Golly, I can't spell calligraphy.ReplyDelete
Love these journal spreads, fantastic typography! #62 JessieReplyDelete
Oh I love them all and you have been journalling like a fiend, haven't you? Wow. Did I mention before how much I love that guy (from 2009) at the side? He just speaks to me - but not in a CRAZY way .....ReplyDelete
back online but slow :(

So much inspiration on your pages!ReplyDelete
Good to have time to enjoy a fun page making spree..Love the Caligraphy PRINT.........Enjoy WOYWW and have a happy week #24ReplyDelete
Beautiful pages! I like the quote on the back of your journal. I need to definitely listen to myself more often!!
I'm not participating in WOYWW this week but wanted to stop by and visit.
I hope you are feeling better and getting some relief.
What an amazing journal you have made! I've never done any with flaps and hidden things, although as a child I always enjoyed them too.ReplyDelete
I also want to comment on you Ash Wednesday post. I enjoyed this very much, and agree with you. Beautiful pictures.
Thanks for stopping by this week.
Well, I've read all the posts on this page today - how varied the topics are that you discuss. I found the one about wabi sabi very interesting indeed, also the one about your thoughts on church. I love churches, the feeling imbued in their fabric is palpable...religious music is wonderful, art and sculpture is amazing but I cannot escape the fact that I detest the 'our religion is best and the only one' attitude of so many people. So I describe myself as spiritual rather than religious.....ReplyDelete
Hugs, LLJ 44 xx
Layers and layers of beauty. Love it! I never get tired of layering my art journal pages. It's funny because I just read Jan's comment, and I already feel like I have so much in common with her - but I too describe myself as spiritual rather than religious - love that. Happy WOYWW!

I think Blogland - and WOYWW - draws kindred spirits... I'd describe myself in the same way :) It's lovely that we can find each from all corners of the globe xDelete
Beautiful journal pages Claire. I like flaps and pockets too! I am not religious as such I just try live a good and honest life, treating people with respect and lending a helping hand when necessary. I think this is far more important than any religious title. Thanks for making me stop and think a bit …ReplyDelete

my you have been very busy and what a great idea love the flaps thanks for visiting and happy Wednesday Andrea #31ReplyDelete
I LOVE IT!!! I realllllly do! I also love and work my journals a lot. But don't think they look nearly as put together as yours.. I think its great and would love to fondle through it. It is just something about flips and pull outs isn't there. :-) Thanks RobertaDelete
Wonderful book, Claire--altered books with lots of interactive things, flaps and pockets and things to explore, those are the best!ReplyDelete
(I'm not woywwing this week, just stopping by!)
Those are fascinating pages, and your calligraphy is great.ReplyDelete
Your art journal is so much fun. I like flaps and pockets and hidden messages. To me that just makes it all the more specials. Thanks for the visit earlier today. Happy WOYWW!ReplyDelete
I have always found lift the flap books intriguing, what a wonderful starting point for your beautiful journal pages.ReplyDelete
these are lovely Claire, I especially like the flap page that reveals the whole of the inclination phrase. a absolutely gorgeous lettering.ReplyDelete
Hello Claire, thanks for stopping by my nest, wow these are fantastic, I love the flip pages too, wonderful journal pages, hope you have a wonderful week, thanks for sharing..ReplyDelete
