I received a Mini Smash Book
for Christmas! The pages measure
5" x 7" and have fun background
designs on each page, as in the
regular Smash Books. It can be used
for scrapbooking, but I choose to
use it as an art journal. Above
represents the date I received it-
12/27/13. Collage includes scrapbook
paper, my watercolor illustrations,
fabric, and pen & ink doodles.
I doodled on the inside cover too...
I often repeat motifs that appear
elsewhere on the pages.
Above, a delightful letter style
spotted on Pinterest, pinned from
Flickr. The letters are as wide as
they are tall, with curlicue accents.
Not difficult to draw, and a way to
change up art journal pages.
Sometimes the days after Christmas and New Year
leave me feeling sad. The festivities are over,
the company has gone home, and it's time to take
down the decorations. The cold weather and
lack of sunshine further deplete my energy.
So, a page full of color and positive thoughts
is something that helps me feel better. Above,
scrapbook paper, images from a collage sheet,
and images on the Smash Book backgground
with some doodles added.
Revisiting a collage from the Scrappy Green Journal
for my beverage reference today.
Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover
gifted me with a gorgeous
scrappy journal, (several years ago)
and I got to fill the pages with art.
She included the Ice Cafe packaging
on the page background. I am not sure
if she knew at that point how fond I am
of coffee and chocolate together, but it
was a fun embellishment for the page,
and very appropriate for me!
