The books from this Retreat were all beautiful and even though I didn't get to finish mine, I hope to later. I wanted to give the participants several page designs to start with so they didn't face a blank page so we started off with the ink blowing. Some had never seen this done, and it was the most successful project of the night! The Center is surrounded with oak trees so I thought the ink blowing would fit in nicely.
Then we used pastels on one page and that made it easier to find places to start writing the favorite quotes. After that some used stamps, torn papers etc. to finish their pages. Covers were then added using card stock.
