An Altered Journal Journey
Phizzychick Phizzychick For just over 2 weeks I have been travelling around the USA with my bloke, we arrived home on Friday. When Rackycoo sent me this wonderful bingo card journal, I knew it would be perfect for all the nick-nacks and paper things I would collect along the way. The pages contain a mix of found objects, collected items and a few things from my stash. I painted the pages before I left so things wouldn't get too messy, but pretty much all of the collaging was done whilst I was away, when I was sat having coffee, in the hotel or train :D

"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward."~Amelia Earhart I've secretly been building a series of step-by-step art journaling posts revolving around the idea that art journaling isn't one easily defined concept.

Today’s post is a little something from my childhood. At school we often used to write letters and doodle in our notebooks to pass the time during boring classes. Every now again we’d be more elaborate in our “crafts” and would make decorated fortune tellers. This simple origami game has delighted kids for years and in America, where I grew up, we went so far as to call them “cootie catchers”. Fortune Teller {Craft Fortune Teller {Craft

An Altered Renaissance
Dawn DeVries Sokol - D'Blogala Dawn DeVries Sokol - D'Blogala I am now entrenching myself into the depths of my next book, which is a follow-up to my first book, 1000 Artist Journal Pages. I sent out emails to all contributors to let them know which pages of theirs were chosen to be in the book. Jan. 30 is the deadline. If you haven’t sent in your scans/photos of your pages as requested, please do so.
I am blessed to live in a truly beautiful place. Peterborough is a lovely small town nestled in the mountains of southwestern New Hampshire. Like many people, I have become so used to the beauty around me that I've come to take it for granted. Driving home this morning after dropping my youngest son at school, I traversed the canopied streets back home realizing that in perhaps a matter of days, the beautiful fall foliage would all come down. When we get to this time of year it only takes one strong rainstorm to bring the remaining leaves down. my collage art ~ nancy lefko
