Journaling with what's available



This was work I did in my journal on the four hour flight from Perth. I did the graphics with gel pens, then added the old payslip envelope that I had in my bag, I hinged it into the book with some money note images that were in a magazine I was reading along with the dream quote, it's amazing what you can create from nothing, I'm working with old used tea bags at the moment creating some 'unusual' art, I'll post it here later if it works out.
I'm going to be teaching a one day altered book workshop, and a one day decorated paper and journal making workshop at Hann Made in Mentone next term, if anyone's interested in attending they can email me or contact Hann Made Studio for details.

I love these pages, they're so colourful. You did really well creating just from what was to hand, and you made really great use of the time on the plane. Ux

I also love this colourful work and If I lived nearer I would be first in the queue to join your classes and I have just noticed you have e-zines, so I will have a browse tonight.

Hi, what wonderful pages. Oh the colors are attracting me too. Love bright colors. So nice that you discovered me and stopped to say so. Now I have found you. I think we have a lot in common and I am about to spend some time going back into your blogland to see.

Love your journal pages. Like others have said, I wish I were close enough to take a class from you. I love making something from nothing.

That is gorgeous Ro! What a great way to pass the hours on a plane. You have inspired me to drag out my poorly neglected art journal!
