I am enjoying this Get Messy season so far, and working in my little hand made journal is a good place to be.
However, I seem to have started a trend last season when I made a small journal and then I made a big one to give myself more options and ended up filling them both (bear in mind that I don’t put hundreds of pages in my books!).
Following this apparent new tradition, I made another journal this season too! I really do like to work in different sizes and on different paper when the mood/idea strikes. For my new book I removed the text block from a children’s cook book and replaced it with hot press watercolour paper and a couple of pages of brown paper from a grocery bag.
The new sketchbook (on the right) is a book I found in a thrift shop and it is the American version of my first cook book when I was a kid in England. I remember making food from it and I loved the cat and dog illustrations. Very 1970’s!
This next spread was a super fun one, inspired by my creative team pal Sarah.
I started on a gelli printed base page and glued down collaged hearts and shapes, added a splodge of paint and finished with some spray paint through a stencil.
I have also been busy this week making postcards to send to some ace people!
How have you been keeping busy this week?
