A few weeks ago I picked this little ledger (9”x7 1/2”) at a yard sale for 38 cents. It was priced fifty cents but I only had 38 cents or a $20 bill…..the lady opted for the change.
I have a few ideas for decorating the cover but, at this point, I’m busy finding papers to use for the journal pages…..like these…….
that include maps and rice paper and
….charts and files…….
….and hand dyed and hand painted papers…….
…..and little sketches on scrap paper…
I’m throwing in some grocery list/doodle practice pages, too.
So, this is the first collaged page I’ve made for my new journal……..
I used a hand made paper base and added the paint advertisement and cut out words…the lettering is a little hard to read, but says “like living in the land of perpetual blue sky & sunshine”!
I’d love to live in this neighborhood! I’ll take the yellow house, you can have the blue, now wouldn’t that be fun?
This side of the page is my front garden, it is full of color this time of year!
I’d say this page does not photograph well…too much going on, hum! Is it possible to put too much on a journal page!!! I think I just did.
Other than that, I think this is going to be a fun (and my first) truly art journal! My other journals are what I call my everything journals; garden, daily, art journals….I want to include more photos and arty stuff in this one! We’ll see where the journal decides to take me!
