More pages from the
Scrappy Green Journal.
Above, drawing and collage.
The flap with writing opens up
to reveal the drawing of a face.
The notes about drawing a face
tell how I approach the process.
On the left, 'found poetry' from
a book about art of the early middle ages.

This Scrappy Green Journal was a
gift from Elizabeth. She sewed two signatures
of pages into a book with a green fabric cover.
The pages are a wonderful assortment
of scrap papers and recycled images.
Flaps and pockets abound.
The yellow Post-It note was a flap,
so naturally I had to add images underneath it.
Quotes and doodles...
Paper and fabric scraps...
The ice cafe package is sewn on
to make a little pocket
that holds a tag.
Notes on 'shading' are written on
a piece of paper from a
vintage-style popcorn bag,
which I glued onto the page,
along with the fabric scraps.
It has been a lovely journey in this book...
and an incredibly generous gift from
Elizabeth. Only about 5 more pages
are left to go, which is sad in a way.
But I have many more journals
so there will be no lack of opportunity
to keep making art!
I have signed up for
Mary Ann Moss' on-line class
"Full Tilt Boogie," so be looking
for the results of my 'studies' here...
I am going to be making more journals
and plan to reveal them here!
What is your favorite journal?
Did you make it or purchase it, and what
do you put in it? I love to receive comments,
so share your insights!
Have a colorful day...
