Using Kate Crane's Mixology Journal for recipes

 Kaz here with my Ministry of Mixology project.

In an effort to try and improve my health as much as I can, I bought a NutriBullet and have been making smoothies for my lunch. I figured that a green smoothie has to have more beneficial nutrients than a bowl of cereal! And, who knew, you can buy pre-chopped frozen fruit. It takes as long and as much effort to make one than the usual cereal lunch I was having!

So to help me vary the smoothies, I've made a recipe journal using the {Ministry of Mixology Kate Crane Journal}

I started off using {DecoArt White Modelling Paste} through the {Grid Round Stencil} and {Letters Stencil}. Once that was dry, I gave all the greyboard sheets a coat of gesso and then went to town with acrylic paints, pens and stamps, including {Kaffee Klatsch} by Natalie Kalbach for Stampendous.

I also used inspirational quotes I got from Pinterest to keep me going.

I can't say that it's improved my health, I'm still feeling as crap as ever, but I think it's good for my general health and having a spinach based fruit smoothie everyday can only help that. I love the taste - my fave is spinach, banana, peach and oats - and surprisingly, it does keep you full up.

The journal comes with the rings and you can also buy {more inserts} so they are very flexible in their use.
