Art Journal Week 48- Ideas

Another fabulous prompt this week for the Deck of Me challenge. Ideas was the word & I had so many!! This card is designed using an idea I pinched from something else I made. My entry for the 4x4 Friday challenge! Only I took this one step further & made the circle a small journal spot. I could have added far more pages but didn't have a larger blue photo turn!
Papers are an offcut from DCWV, Once Upon a Time. Art, taken from chipboard pack to match Old World papers, also DCWV. Stamp, Stamps Happen which I have since discovered has a name...it was written on the side..dhur! #90289 Postcard Collage. Poto turn & brad, Queen & Co.

I took a photo of it open so you can see my journal spot in its full glory.

Ideas come to me in the strangest places & at the oddest times. Often they don't work out on paper, many get thrown into the bits box to have parts cut off & reused on other projects. Some even find themselves filed in the B one n...bin!! This card is even an idea that originally went wrong. I'd planned a lightbulb embossed in gold that lifted up with my journalling underneath, but I just couldn't draw one & my printer is out of ink!
