on the art desk today.

A lovely Wednesday afternoon, inside the journal, I'm just reworking old pages I didn't like or have sat unfinished, I have a few of these pages sitting there, so my mission before I went any further was revamp...I added some fabric to the side of the page, scrapbooking paper old photographs, some acrylic ink flowers washi tape and pitt pen.

remember that pocket I showed u on my last post I think...well I decided to give it some flare. adding little elements like this to a page, just makes it that much more eye appealing...they are simple to add, usually I'm arting at the buss stop and just doodle where I want things come home and bring it to life with inks and paints.

adding photocopies of other artworks from other journals and glueing them down to alter and create new work, is also a new idea I'm exploring...what new art can come from my old art...who knows!
also in the shot is a cute old envelope I found it was one of those 'reply paid' ones for something, and I created a new look for it, by turning it inside out, washii tape and a little patterned paper to to the inside, label tag and away we go! making new from old, gotta love it.
getting my sewing things ready for my trip to armidale in a couple of weeks, to get my sew on with my best friends, as a birthday treat from the love of my life.

hope you enjoyed todays post, if you have any questions feel free to contact me, or leave a comment, I do love reading your comments and emails about things, makes me realize Im not talking to myself!
