Art Journal: Gathering

· Read in about 1 min · (134 words) ·

I showed you the cover portion of the book I’m working on in yesterday’s post. Today, I’m gathering up things from around the studio that I think I will use on the inside and to decorate the cover.

I’m sure you’re getting the idea of the theme, here: roses. And I’m going with an old fashioned theme. So this sets my colors to pinks, reds, tans and browns with some accents of green, yellow and gold.

I found lots of goodies. Stickers left over from the scrapbooking days, printed papers and card stocks, dimensional flowers, paper doilies, and note cards. I want to find some lace, to go with some pre-stamped items that were in the “already stamped” file.

Time to do some cutting and gluing to start covering the outside of the book!
