  1. What a fabulous beginning! Thank you for all the work you put into this, Bernice!

  2. Great first entry for our journals...thanks Bernice

  3. Hi Bernice, this is my first time trying this. I would like to know the purpose of all the writing in the beginning just to cover it all up? Thanks in advance for helping me learn.

    1. Hi Marie. If you look at my pages you will see that I don't cover up my journaling. However most people don't like their own handwriting (I don't like mine) and one of the ways with dealing with that is to hide the journaling. Also as a starting exercise it is sometimes useful to write everything on the page and then cover it up especially if you want to write something you don't want other people to read but you know they are going to see your finished page. If you look at my pages for Passport to Art on my blog you will see that I hid most of the journaling in different ways. Hope that helps. If you need any other help please email me.

    2. Join the Facebook group and you will get lots of help and support. :D
