So, I got hooked up with Junk Journal Junkies on Facebook, so my feed is full of gorgeous books that folks have made or received.
Also…So. Much. Lace.
Anyway, as I’m so situated as to have access to books (heh), I picked up a few likely victims…
I’m definitely thinking “themes,” so in order L to R, Love, Coffee, Travel, practice, and Politics.
I think that last book will need to be swapped for a thicker book.
The practice book is a badly decayed Mother Goose. I thought to make it the Coffee book, because I love the cover:
But I’m not certain that the old cover will make it…
It’s all fits and starts when it comes to all this. I’m full of ideas, but lack motivation. I know what to do, but lack the energy.
I am bereft without the LOML* and my heart is wounded by loneliness.
…but make art while the laundry runs…
*LOML = Love Of My Life
I pre-orderd this book because I don’t always want to see how artists make their journal pages…I just want to see their pages sometimes. It’s like I can peer between the covers of THEIR journals and get inspired by the fact that there seem to be infinite possibilities for pages to make.
Even if I can’t draw.
I have no ambition to get any of my pages into a book someday. I just play. And playing makes me happy.
That is SO enough for me – but this is a very good book.
I have the first one too. Love them both…
