Little Golden Book Journal: Finding Nemo

 

I have a tendency to go a little over board when I get excited about an art project. I have collected A LOT of children’s books and my head is over flowing with ideas for journals and bags and….. oh so much more. I am working on a series (” Books and Bags” )for a while.  I need to switch gears for a while. It has been hard finding real estate in this new place to build a studio for teaching, so we decided to postpone it for a while. This leaves me a little time to just art. Just relax. Just have fun.  So that I can release the inner creative beast before I explode, I decided to go back to working on one of my favorite things: Book binding and journals.  I love this because there are no rules. I can sew, paint, work with papers, work with books, stamps, texture, jewelry components, fabrics, hardware,…the list just goes on.  This series will last until I run out of books or until I have chewed all the flavor out of it, or until a squirrel runs by… you creative types know what I am talking about.

This nautical themed journal began with a little golden book and became a junk journal, my favorite no-rules art journal thing so far.  This one is on its way to Indiana right now.
