The Hamster on my Head

You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not’?
George Bernard Shaw

Art Journaling: Me and hamsti selfie in my art journal,  by iHanna of www.ihanna.nu
Let’s draw selfies! Much more fun and original than taking them with your cell phone!

Working on new journal with brown paper bags inside, but also in this one darling journal. There is a drawn selfie of me, with a hamster on my head. It’s from when I did baby sit a hamster a few weeks this fall:

He’s called Santie. He used to walk over my journals when out on the desk, eat my washi tape and lick my watercolors. Because then I colored in the background:

I quite like this art journal spread, as a whole (no collage included):

    This is what art journaling is all about! The day to day stuff that makes you smile, think, wonder, or giggle about your life! That’s why I do it!

  2. Yeah, I like it too . . . collage or no collage it’s the sentiment that counts.

    Love your selfie and the hamster … it’s too cute! : )

  4. After reading that, I think more women ought to put a hamster on their head and see what happens.
