I’ve been thinking how to beautify my composition book, that I’m using as a notebook. I know you’ve seen them before. I have just a basic one, that’s black and white. These are the foundation for many art journals. There’s something about their size that’s just right. Too bad they don’t come with watercolor papers... but then they would be much more expensive! I just lay gesso or paint down, or glue in another sheet on top of the pages.
This is my current art journal.
And here's the year before.
But back to the notebook at hand...
What’s in it? Notes about the books I read, lists and dreams, sketches and doodles. What I decided to do was take my favorite coloring book page I completed last month for the BBArtisan Challenge and glue it to the cover of the book.
Then I used Aimee’s “Secret Garden” washi tape and framed the artwork –
the colors went so well together.
Here’s the end result! That’s a far cry from what I started with!
Come over to Aimee’s Glue it Tuesday Linky and see what everyone is glueing.
