Last Year's Resolutions Pages

Have you started working on your resolutions yet? Perhaps, you don't buy into such things? Even if you don't use the New Year to re-think your life, we all do it at some point, maybe your birthday? Here are a few pages I worked on last year. Sadly, I didnt stick with the plans, this year, I intend to scrap-journal about what went wrong and how I can try it right this year!

I used a simple plain magnetic style album for this, pulled the plastic wrap off each page and glued scrap pieces of cardstock and patterned paper to the album. The first page I inked and used some old money stickers to talk about my debt situation. I mixed up sticker letters from incomplete sheets of letter stickers.
This page incorporated chipboard letters, left-over papers again and stamps. I didnt have anymore "E"s so, I flipped a number 3 around and used it. (both the chip board letters and the stickers.
I wanted the stamps to look aged, so I stamped the word money kind of sloppy, distressed the paper with the same ink and embossed with clear embossing powder to make it POP.
more scrap paper, and mixed stickers on this one. The brown paper I journaled on and the brown, lined paper (where "The Bad" is written) used pages from another old album. (the kind where you slide your 4x6 pictures in the sleeve and the lined pages were supposed to pull out and journal on. I used the album for something else and saved the inserts to use as scraps. Since this is a scrap album, I thought they worked well here)
more mixed paper, mixed chipboard letters, old journal cards and paint complete this page. I used green paint around the top journal page to look like a mat. "Enough Said" is a stamp

I love the way a scrap journal comes together, mixing left-over used items to give it a great shabby chic look. Are you going to have any life goals or resolutions this year?
