Since I'm quite worn out today and don't feel up to any creative challenge, I started with doodling. I haven't been drawing this pattern since high school but let me tell you it was quite recreational.
And my very first stickers on the back. I had to use them cause my journal arrived with a British price tag glued on it's back which I removed (bad idea) and all of a sudden my book started sticking to everything I put it on.
I was a bit afraid that when I get my nice and shiny new book I wouldn't feel like ruining it according to the instructions but after doodling I realized wrecking is not necessarily destroying. It's more like using and that means making it your own. So I can say I'm already owning my journal! :)
