Green Journal Bingo

The first page, above, from the Green Journal, sent to me by Elizabeth. I got in a

I put a thin coat of gesso on the Bingo card, added painted papers, drawings with marker and a fabric strip at the bottom. The text is cut from a book to create "found poetry." It reads:

  1. You have really transformed this book already. I'm so glad to see you working in it, and LOVE what you have done so far. The idea of adding personal thoughts to this journal is a compliment to me, whether you realize it or not.

    I have to agree with the sentiment about procrastination. I know I put off making Kayla's cover of her book until after every other book was made, even though hers were the first pages I made. Seems when we are intimidated, the same thing happens. Lovely sentiment to go with the three slides.

    And the first page you made was simply INCREDIBLE. I would never have thought to do what you did with the bingo page. My mind simply doesn't work that way. Guess that's why I don't journal (grin).

  2. this whole journal looks so enticing. love what you did to the page, especially your doodles.

    and good on you for stepping out of your comfort zone with the writing.
