I’ve found myself a few times caught in the throes of an inspiration blitz, and wishing I had some art supplies to do some drawing, scribbling, writing or photography. A few months back, I treated myself to a cool little point and shoot camera that I could leave in the nappy bag, and not have to tote my big SLR around everywhere. One problem down. I’ve been planning since then to bind myself a little art journal that I could use for a similar purpose.
So over the holidays, I found the time to bind myself two little ACEO-sized art books:
I actually made two in a similar style, this one, “Create” has an acrylic painting on the front. The other, “Dream”, has a similar image on the front, drawn in pastels. Unfortunately, when I sprayed some ‘stuff’ on it to stop the pastels smudging on everything, it stained, so it’s my back-up book!
Inside, I used a mixture of drawing paper, watercolour paper, pastel paper & wrutung paper, to keep my options open!
I also made a little cover to protect it from getting a total trashing whilst floating around in my bag.
Not bad for an hour or so worth of ‘work’! Can’t wait for the opportunity to use it now.
Happy Monday everyone!

“create” is gorgeous. Your use of space is perfect. I’m sure it will soon be full of ideas.
