Since I cleaned up my studio, I realize
that it is definitely time to use it up
and do some serious making with
what’s on hand.
I love the combination of
funky and pretty, recycled
and reused and some new is
A new journal, a funkadelic,
coloraholic journal has emerged
from the combination described
Had to play with the pics, too much sun and shadow on the clothesline.
The cover is a cereal box covered in muslin, painted with acrylic.
I used leftover cut outs of tattered flowers to create this stencil
for the watercolor pages.
Glimmer mist for the background
in a blue and candlelight for the stencil.
Faux aging if you will.
Some pretty scrapbook paper pages,
recycled dryer sheets for the spines for
reinforcement and some fun mag images
that just pleased the eye. I see Christmas
gifts in the making here…
Waxed linen thread, some linen ribbon, and some pretty Melody Ross
paper clips, voila, new journal.
The day is as near perfect and gorgeous as I can imagine, now
I am going to get out there and walk that big, black dog…..
