There's an iguana under that flower.
This art journal looks very similar to the Hot Dog art journal you may have seen in my last post,
because I worked on them at the same time,
using lots of the same ephemera -
but is actually quite different.
Both of these journals were made out of recycled greeting cards.
The flowers on the cover of both are some that I made for a project which my Sophia asked me to help her make.
She designed and directed the above flower robot and I used left-over flowers for the art journal covers. :)
Jennibellie was my main inspiration. :)
I was also motivated by the fact that I'll be teaching a couple workshops on making art journals out of what most people usually throw away
- in Florida -
in about 3 weeks time!
I have hundreds more cards that I've saved over the years and will hopefully put them to good use...soon.
I've decided I'm on a down-sizing spree and every time I use something that I already have on hand...
it makes me feel SO good.
It really is a totally joyful process.
Try it -
