Sketch book Wednesday with Mrs. Staggs
Mrs. Staggs requested a journal page with instructions for a craft. My friend and I are exchanging mini books this week so I thought this might be a good project for the page. Click on the photos to make them larger.
What I did:
The photos above are fairly self-explanatory. I started with plain old tags I bought an an office supply store years ago and painted them with acrylic paint. Bought scrunchies at a dollar store and took the ribbons off them, because I did not want to spend $$$ for Halloween ribbon on spools.
I used my own paintings/drawings/art and edited them smaller and cut them out for some of the art. I painted the background plaid paper with watercolors. I keep a box of box of painted papers on hand that I make then I have time. Sometime I hate to cut them up, though.
Think about the possibilities: you could make a book for any holiday this way. I wish I had made more than one. You could make birthday card books, sticker books for kids, and mini note pads (if you don't paint the interior pages). Still struggling to get good photos of the journal pages.
Update: all problems were resolved today with digital equipment. It took three hours and a visit from two repair people. So far so, good, everything working.
I have just inherited my husband's cold, so I am glad that my schedule is quiet for the rest of the week.
Hope you have a creative day!
