Journal Pages

Junk Journals from old books.

Posted on Updated on

So, I got hooked up with Junk Journal Junkies on Facebook, so my feed is full of gorgeous books that folks have made or received.
Also…So. Much. Lace.

Anyway, as I’m so situated as to have access to books (heh), I picked up a few likely victims…

I’m definitely thinking “themes,” so in order L to R, Love, Coffee, Travel, practice, and Politics.

I think that last book will need to be swapped for a thicker book.

The practice book is a badly decayed Mother Goose. I thought to make it the Coffee book, because I love the cover:

But I’m not certain that the old cover will make it…

It’s all fits and starts when it comes to all this. I’m full of ideas, but lack motivation. I know what to do, but lack the energy.

I am bereft without the LOML* and my heart is wounded by loneliness.

…but make art while the laundry runs…

*LOML = Love Of My Life

My littlest art journal

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been carrying this little art journal around for quite a while now (more than 2 years?) It fits in my purse w/o fuss and has kept me from “going postal” in more than one of those meetings that should have just been emails…

There are many pages “in progress” and some blanks just waiting to save lives…

There are pages of stamped art..

And a whole lot of stencil lurve…

Oh! My little one! There may come a day when you are “finished” but until then,  your covers will get beat up at the bottom of my purse.
Which is why I decorate art journal covers LAST, if at all.

PS – Is it weird that once I post pictures of my journal pages, I get ideas about how to “finish” them?
