I went out to dinner with my friend Forrest, who is a Co-Owner of Artterro, the other night and had such a great time and incredibly inspiring conversation. We talked about creativity and she gave me so many wonderful ideas and so much support and perhaps I had a bit too much wine. So I felt really tired and cruddy the next day. I laid down to take a nap but I could not shut my eyes because my head was just so full of things I wanted to try. I jumped up and started work on an art journal – one of the things we talked about the night before.
I took this old book apart. I’m taking beaver back.
I found a few books at the library that were destined for the recycling bin. I like to think I saved them.
I did what I consider to be foundation pages.
Also, this book has some really cute paragraph titles and pages that I will totally use in the book.
Also some awesome beaver shots.
Claude Debussy. No reason. I stapled two overlapped pages together.
Some more stapled stuff.
I think this is my favorite so far.
I still need to paint the other side of these pages, too.
I tried to think in terms of framing the paper.
This is a bag. It looks the most unfinished to me. I need to keep in mind that I’ll be adding more. I do really like the white.
