Many moons ago I began my first Gratitude Journal, I was probably in my late 20s when I read Sarah Ban Breathnach’s Simple Abundance. On seeing PaperArtsy’s Everything Art EEA03, the words “I believe in gratitude” jumped out at me. This week I am sharing a simple A5 journal, a gratitude journal.

Tear around the sentiment and circles. Create a focal with a Photo Booth image, the stamped elements, ribbon and washi tape. Doodle onto the Photo Booth image and add white paint pen dots to the circles.
