Hello, guys! :)
First of all, I gotta say thanks *so much* for all the love and sweet words both here & over at Sassafras - I have the bestest readers in the whole world, I think!! :) I'm sending you love & good ju-ju back, too!
Here's the third (and my most favorite favorite thing I've made in a long while...) page in my art journal from the Summer of Love journal I made back in June.
Parts 1 & 2 are right here, if you missed them.
It's, again, totally not very readable, journalling-wise - but I know what it says - which is all that really matters in an art journal, yeah? And it majorly helped me fall in love with the messyness of my hurried writing. :) I used pencil, pencil crayon, and a fine-tipped black pen to do all of the text - and lots of fabric scraps, the spine of my book-cover book, old film, and a few other favorite little bits & bobs.And the sewing! Oh, the sewing. I'm so addicted to thread + paper. :)
And a few other pages from the journal:
I found this photo from the lovely Birds Nest and Paper and fell in love with it!
It had the cutest writing on the back, and I pondered the story for a bit. :)
I'm really really craving and art journal hour or so right about now, especially after looking back at this book, but literally tonight I need to finish an invitation design, 2 illustrations, and a friends' thank-you card cuz tomorrow is my last night in town for a week! :) Eeek! Wish me luck! lol. Hello, coffee I say - and Diane Birch is my new all-nighter best tune friend.
I hope this lil art journal o' mine has inspired you to write illegibly and show an old book some love! he he. And remember, Kara's lovely class for which this book was made is still available in her shop, The Sequined Shoe!
