This is the newly thrifted book that I am working in as my Art Journal;
I love these old books with thick sturdy pages, but I’m having a hard time finding new ones at the thrift shop. Where are they all hiding when I need them? I think the thrift shops might discard them because nobody buys them… but me. This one has the pretties cover so far, a keeper for sure. It is about the ocean and has some very cool illustrations that I like.
Look at his guy, spotted in the circle pages;
This little creature, isn’t he cute?! You can’t even see it here but he lives in a bubble this wee illustration and it has a rather nice (round) shape to it fitting my portion control theme very well.
Here are two very cute illustrations from inside my altered book;
I think this is a beautiful illustration. It is a ancient octopus coin from Greece – it looks like something that could be in a painting by Leah Piken Kolidas, don’t you agree?
What is it about me and the dront? He keeps coming back to me (I did glue one into my diary last year).
