I have found a way to combine my tendency to packrat paper with my interest in Art Journalling, and I must say I'm thrilled. I have bound some of the papers together to form the beginnings of an art journal, and I'm already saving for Volume 2!
I won't take credit for this brilliant idea, however - it was inspired by Hanna, whose blog I follow avidly. Thanks Hanna!
Coincidentally, Michelle Ward at GPP Street Team is asking us to create "evidence" pages in our journals this month. So this idea is kind of an "Evidence Journal".
Here are a few snaps to give you the idea:
The Cover - no, I can't even throw a pizza box away!
A Library Card showing the title of the journal and a scene I stamped on a visit to my sister's house.
Recognize those scraps?
A handwritten letter I received at Christmas - too precious to toss!
A beautiful card my sister made for me.
"Evidence" collected at a visit to the Vancouver Art Gallery.
