quotes, verses, poems, rhymes, sayings, proverbs, thoughts, bits and bobs, songs, mottos and wisdom (maybe) - round journal for a friend
I've been working on this journal for a friend for awhile - is a collection of quotes. The denim pocket above is full of tags with quotes about stars.
The page above is frustrating. I sanded a mirror on the back so we can see the cross through it but I also left it reflective...the mirror itself is quite effective when you look into it because your eyes spend a lot of time trying to figure out what to look at before finding their own reflection. I am just not sure how I feel about the collage as a whole - clunky, I think.
I've always got a charge out of the above proverb.
Love the simplicity of the above page. The image is one of Van Gogh's from an art book I got from my sister.
When the book is assembled it will go into this box.
I also made my friend this little pencil can.
