WOYWW 149 - a work in progress
I had a wonderful, wonderful yesterday splodging paint around at The Cubby Hole, Crewe. Armed with an old Amazon box, a pile of paper and a stack of paints I spent the day creating a new art journal.
The beauty of working in a shop is that new supplies are right to hand! I just fell in love with the Graphic 45 door handle and plate and when the rest of the journal cost so little I had no problem justifying its purchase!
With all my journaling over the last week or so I've started missing my handmade journal with its different sized pages (it's at Stampington & Co awaiting publication hee hee) and when my eye caught this Amazon box I decided it would make a perfect cover.
Inside the pages have been created from scrapbook papers, old envelopes, watercolour paper and pre-painted papers. The file folder is by Cavallini, which I found in my local Waterstones :)
I love the challenge that starting from different papers provides. I am a little scared now by the size of this journal lol!
So now it waits on my workdesk to be stitched together! Don't forget to take time to peruse lots of other desks via Julia's Stamping Ground.
