We Make Things. It is Fun.

Week 28 of the Documented Life Project 2015:
Time keeps on ticking...
I made some color copies of a journal page
I had painted of vintage bottles, cut them out
and glued onto this new page. In this
newer incarnation, I included
a Jim Croce song lyric.
Other painted papers, graph paper, and
 origami papers are also part of the collage.

For the second half of the Week 28 spread I used
some vintage illustrations from an old health textbook.

I love that this elementary school
 textbook presented arts and crafts 
as part of a balanced,
 healthy development - 

along with brushing your teeth! 
Watercolor and assorted papers 
and pen drawing complete the collage.

Week 39, "At this Moment..."
another collage with my own drawing of
a flower and clouds, painted papers, and stamping.
The bird image is a commercial rubber stamp,
and the leaf image is a stamp that I carved.

Enjoy Summer Artist Trading Card
that I made earlier in the summer, just seemed
to fit here in this collage. It is taped hinge-style
on one side. Beneath the atc reads
"enjoy the now."

And I hope you are enjoying 
the now! Whether it's quiet moments
with friends and family, or exciting
new adventures!

Linking up with 
over at Balzer Designs, and


  1. This is certainly lovely. I've used "Time in a bottle" twice in my Time AB, so it's a great entry. Yours is much lovelier than mine, though. You should enter this in the Art Journal Journey (link on my right sidebar) whose theme this month is Time.

    I wish it was cool enough to walk. By the time I water my herbs, I'm perspiring so hard, I can barely make it to the shower to cool off. I'm glad your temps and humidity are not getting you down.

  2. Really love your wonderful journal pages, especially the time in a bottle one, that text is so special. Thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey, hugs, Valerie
