Since I started writing this blog, the first of this year, I have mentioned my artwork and shared a few pieces but today, I want to share one of my art journals and I hope you will enjoy.
This little book is made up of 4 1/2 by 6 inches cardboard pages that I have punched with three holes. The holes are fitted with metal rings that bind the whole thing together...the cover comes later!
Here I stamped and added a glittered crown that tops a cool 50s car that sits a top a map, a piece of a blueprint, tape measure and a strip of glitter paper topped by a cork circle stamped with a "y".
A bingo card topped with a coaster and clock hands.
One of my favorite photos, is actually my Grandmother and her friends, who look like they have just enjoyed a day in the outdoors so I added a leaf and seed pod. All this tops a piece of sheet music titled "Can't You See I Love You".
The dragonfly sits on a piece of painted and stamped paper finished with a piece of cardboard and a twig.
This is a half page, that is between pages, it is covered with wallpaper, a ticket stub, a clear overlay hand and some type.
This side of the half page is stamped, paper lace, buttons, lace and a tape measure.
Finally, a tribute to young love with a sweet photo and stamp on top of a piece of cardboard trimmed with lace and ribbon.
This will become the cover of my art journal. I love the old worn blue color and the title "One hundred narrative poems". I'll punch holes and add the metal rings for binding.
I am going to add some beads and other trim to finish it all off and there is room to add several more pages, if I want.
This quiet, rainy Saturday afternoon gave me some time to browse my list of blogs I follow and I came across this great party September Holiday Open House at The Answer is Chocolate and so I'm off to join the fun!
Thanks for visiting me today!
