Do journal pages look more interesting if they are photographed on table where they were made?
Don't you love trying to look at everything in the background that forms the studio that people work in?
I know that I love seeing messy caotic studios where there are layers and piles of stuff all over just waiting in turn to become something.
These pages are from "The Supreme Journal", see the category side bar link for more from this journal. A cut and paste kind of journal that was made from a mix of paper with enlarged photos sewn here and there.
Pockets were made with all kinds of stuff thrown in, then everything was bound together with no regard to order.
It's a big messy journal just like the studio I work in with only a small space carved out to work in.
All kinds of paper gathered from daily life.
A place to put stuff like bizarre letters from family members that may become humorous over time. Unlikely, but they are gathered among the pages just in case.
Speeding tickets from foreign countries, menus, reciepts and junk mail, everything finds a place in this journal.
Flotsam and jetsam is my favorite type of journal, everything that washes up in daily life.
A wreck of a journal.
Bits and pieces are clipped to pages, some make it onto the pages, some become lost in the mess only to resurface to become part of some other journal.
Anything and everything is fodder when I make a journal, like half a record. I have no idea where the other half is or why I happened to have half a record but it seemed to belong in this journal.
and I bought a new chair
Any guesses how long it will stay white. BUT, it was on sale and comfortable. I have convinced myself that it is okay if I get paint or markers on it. When the white leather gets to a point of no return I will glue paper and paint on it making into a working chair journal.
A chair journal, now that is fun.
I predict it isn't long until some paint intentionally gets spilled to speed this process along.
At some point, there will be spray paint and stencils involved.
and something added to my etsy shop because I love making things other than journals even though my blog readers want to see journal pages.
As a self supporting artist, crafter, journal maker I have to make stuff to sell, so bear with me.
