ABANDON YOURSELF TO CURIOSITY

I started out playing with the large watercolor tags from Joggles. After creating the tags, I decided to actually use them in one of their disc bound tag journals. This one is actually a watercolor disc bound tag journal 8" x 5". I used matte medium and adhered the tags I created to a tag page in the journal. It was easy to do since you can pop out the pages and keep them flat. Once I attached my tags, I popped all the pages back in the journal in the order I wanted them. 


The cover of my journal is made from two stamps I had in my stash. The body is from the Unity stamp by Christy Tumblinson and the face is a Woodland Fairy Stamp by Kristin Peterson. I stamped the face onto one of Joggles 2.5" watercolor trading coins and used the Marabu Graphic Aqua watercolor pens to color it. Then I glued the stamped coin onto the large tag covering the unity stamp face, leaving just the body of the Unity stamp showing.
I also used the 2" watercolor trading coin by Joggles and sewed an elastic ribbon to it to keep my journal closed adding the words "Abandon Yourself to Curiosity".  It doesn't need it right now, but I like the look and eventually, my journals like to get fat. I can't say enough how nice it is to create each page individually and then just pop them in a journal. If you don't like a page you created, you can just pop it back out.
Here are some of the inside pages I created just for fun for the journal using Marabu Graphic Aqua Watercolor pens.

By gluing the tags I created onto the pages of the journal, I still have plenty of room to journal around the tags. I left the back sides of each page blank for extra journaling.
