For the past few years, I’ve been using composition books as art journals. But this year, I was thinking of putting together my own journal. When I read the supply list for Lauri Grumsham-Cox’s 21 Secrets class, I knew I found my journal: we were going to “deconstruct to reconstruct” a journal using a composition book.
Lauri suggested we gather together different papers for our journal. So I cut to size some watercolor paper, discarded mailers and envelopes, some papers I collaged in another 21 Secrets class , and a few old paper dividers.
I followed the instructions and tried to put my soul into it. The woman I painted on the cover even encouraged me to cut my hair! I decided to add this post into my journal, to remind me of my instructor and 21 Secrets. Thanks, Lauri, for the opportunity of making my art journal for 2015!
As chance had it, this post was just in time for my AlphabeThursday Letter E! Come see what other bloggers and web designers have to say about the Letter E, over at Ms. Jenny’s site, … off on my tangent…
