Art Journal Pages
Recycled ice cream cone image
from one of my posters used in a
weight-loss meeting. Too fun to waste...
The quote is from Pinterest, and it
made me smile.
The 'shading' around the page border
was done with watercolor crayons.
It goes on like a crayon, and then you apply
water to soften the shading. My Sharpie
pen did not want to write on the surface
of the watercolor crayon!
The rose is a sketch on the back of a
restaurant placemat. I tore around the
ball point pen image, and then added watercolors.
It's pasted into my green Eco Smash Journal.
This tree logo is from a paper bag.
The store is Aldi's, a discount grocery store.
I really liked the curlicue branches, so
into the Smash Journal it went.
The sketch above is how I would like
my studio/craft room to look! In actuality it's
mostly a pile of plastic storage boxes, baskets
and one bookcase at the moment...
and has to double as a spare bedroom
when my children and grandchildren
come to stay.
I am a list maker. It doesn't
necessarily make me more organized,
but it helps get ideas down so they
don't disappear...as long as I don't
lose the list, that is!
