My Journal (1)

by Evonne Mandella

Planning to go on a field trip to a local museum or to the  homeschool convention? Want to help your child chronicle all those special moments with style? Then you have come to the right place! Today, I am going to take your family on a step-by-step journey to making your very own gorgeous journal page. Even if you think you’re not tech-savvy, you’ll find these instructions easy to use for both you AND your child.And best of all, it won’t cost you a dime!


Getting Started

Simply right click on the lined photo paper, and save the file to your computer.

Gather photo files from previous field trips…or visit Wikipedia and save photo files that fit your desired location. For example, you might search “Revolutionary War paintings” after a field trip to the Revolutionary War Museum.

Read the license for each picture before use. Images that are listed as “public domain” may be used freely.
