"Wanderlust" journal - MAY and JUNE

I'm here with my May and June pages in what I still call the "Wanderlust" journal:

one of the "Activities" prompt "I'm like a ... that..."

We were supposed to be "working big" in one of Kasia's classes. I made a big master-board which I cut into smaller pieces and created covers for my future journals.

But I also wanted to have something in my journal so I used the leftover pieces to create this page. I'm not super thrilled about how it turned out, though...

As I promised last month, this is the finished mini-book from the "working small" class.

and not a class

Random "thought of the day":

I'm not a fan of the prompts that urge you to go outside your comfort zone. Yes, it's OK to try something new but this needs to come from within. You see some technique you've never tried before or you are scared of trying and you keep thinking about it and try it eventually - in your own time, at your own pace. But trying something uncomfortable just for the sake of trying - that is not right. This should be about you and not about going outside your box at all costs.

This is not supposed to be a rant - even though it might seem like one... it's just something that's been on my mind...

Also, I'm not sure how many people are reading this as I get close to zero feedback - which slightly discourages me from doing more detailed posts. I get into this "what's the point of this all" mood because I'm really not sure who's interested in this.
