New Art Journal...Lifejournal #1


I decided that I needed a new art journal....one that I would take with me every where and put my life into. So, I was at Sweet Salvage and found this great book.... it was an Audubon bird book. For only 7.00 bucks.
 I took the book block out and covered the covers with vintage wallpaper. Then went through all my papers that I have collected...and made new signatures...and put them back in to the book.

                                                           Vintage wallpaper....
                                    The signatures ready to be sewn into the book....
                                                      The finished cover with collage on it...



 I made sure my first and last signature had the original pages of the birds showing....now let me show you some of the mixed papers I put inside the book.


                   I will do my art work on these different kinds of papers:):)
 The very first page....done..... I kept the bird whole...and did my art around it.
another page done...simple paint circles...with lots of doodling on top:):)

Very HAPPY with this new journal.

Look forward to working in it every day.

Thanks for stopping by....
