Alphabet journal Letter S

The second letter I've tackled for the alphabet journal is S. To me this means Summer holidays at the seaside at Chapel Point in Lincolnshire. We used to meet up with the same friends every year, build huge sand boats, and sit on them until the sea washed them away. Cricket on the beach, collecting shells, paddling, (I never did learn to swim). They are happy memories of childhood.

Alphabet journal pages Letter N

I have joined a group doing an alphabet journal. We are doing them in a random order, and N was the first letter. I am using a hot press smooth watercolour paper, and making signatures to sew together at the end. I had already started doing one last year, so can add those at the end of the journal.
I painted the backgrounds with Brusho paints, and added pictures, some stamping, and then did some journaling at the end.
It has taken me ages to get started, but having done so, I feel a lot more confident about it.
