October Daily: Day 8 6x8 Layout Process Video

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a 6x8 layout in my October Daily Album! I also have a flip through video if you want to see my completed pages so far! 

For this day, I focused on my little self-care break. I took a trip to Starbucks for a Pumpkin Creme Cold Brew. I don't head to Starbucks everyday, but when I do it is usually for a pumpkin treat in the Fall. What are some little things you are thankful for today? 

List of supplies for this album:

Gouache Painting for My Latest Junk Journal

Hello friends! I have been trying out new ways to add stories to my Junk Journal. This outfit of the day painting in gouache is one of my new ideas! It was super easy to do! 

 I used Paper Fashion Gouache and Watercolor Paper from Canson. I folded it in half so that I could slip it into the elastics in my latest junk journal. I hand-lettered with my Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen (Hard Tip). I hope you take the time to create something and relax today! Thanks for visiting today!
