I haven't posted since August and since then, I have completed 3 journals. I thought I'd share :) I took too many photos tonight and I'll post them one at a time, once I've gone through the pictures. But here's the 3 in a pile:

Today I'll be sharing the bottom one, Volume 17.

Started: 29th July 2015
Finished: 27th October 2015

This is one of my precious journals from The Works. They haven't had anything quite as good in stock since I bought these. I love the covers (and the paper!).

I don't think I've shown an inside cover before, but it gets filled with all sorts of stickery crap off things that come my way while I'm in the journal. There's also the tag I put in each journal showing the volume and start and end dates. I've also kept my Powell's receipt in the front. I flew over to America while in this journal and got to visit Powell's in Portland.

I planned to include more photos in this journal as I finally have a phone that takes halfway decent pictures. I didn't count on my general laziness though. I'd take photos and never get much printed! Anyway, first entry here and I found this little moth outside the door at work one morning.

Typical text pages. I really liked the feel of writing in this journal.

A local travel company does an irregular day trip to London for £20. It's a long day, but there's always so much to write about when I get back!

In August, I read nothing but Stephen King. This year I printed out the covers of the editions I read (I get a lot of my Stephen King second hand) so I could have a visual record of my reading.

Saw "The Martian" for the second time, loved that film. Also it was beginning to feel like Autumn and I'd bought a whole load of stickers from America to decorate my journal with.

Likewise, Halloween stuff. I bought way, way too many Halloween stickers. And washi tape. Oh, I love washi tape.

Inks I used. My theme was dark, wine reds.

Aw, thanks! I'm grievously behind, but catching up, and when I do, I will make huge posts! :-)

What a lovely journal! Very inspiring. What I wouldn't do to have such nice penmanship. :-)

Thank you! That's very sweet of you to say :)

This is beautiful! I love the cover and that you used a theme for inks :) (Also I'm a huge nerd about The Martian too!)

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks! I loved The Martian as well. It was my favourite book of 2014! I saw it on the opening day when I was over in America, then I saw it again when I got home.

Another lovely journal. Do you print out the images? They're a nice quality and I'm wondering where you get your little book cover images.

Thanks! I print the images from Goodreads, or just what I can find on a Google search. I do use better quality paper than standard printer paper, it helps with keeping the image crisp.

Well good job, they're beautiful. :)
