On Saturday the 24th July I'm holding another Junk Journal workshop at my home.
There are still a few vacancies. If you'd like to attend, just email me and I'll send you the details.
This journal is made from all recycled materials eg junk mail, envelopes, brochures, paper bags, scrap papers, gift wrap, packaging anything that can be stitched into a fabric spine. I use my journal everyday, partly as a diary and also as a place to experiment and let go. It sits on the bench in my studio waiting patiently for it's turn to be noticed. I paint lots of the pages then go back and add to them when I find something to suit. It's a great place to add those special cards and postcards that take your eye.
Here's some of the pages that are in varying stages of completion, but then what does completion mean.
I was very inspired today when I received LK Ludwig's latest book in the mail. It's fabulous, featuring all of these wonderful artists and their journals. I was thrilled to see my buddies Judy and Karen in there as well as many other wonderful blogging acquaintances. Misty, Katie and Seth are in there too.
There's a bonus too, a wonderful journal in the back made from the printer's leftovers, what a fabulous idea.
