Inspiring Journals Competition

Creative journal competition by @InspiringJournals in association with the National Galleries of Scotland.

We’ve been looking at collage in all its forms this summer. And creative, art or junk journaling (or scrapbooking) is a brilliant and engaging evolution. Check out @kia.creates' and @mygreencow’s works on our Instagram channel to see what we mean.
