Thanks to Gretchen Miller's Revolutionary Art Journaling process, I am delighted with my New Year's Revolution. I looked through my most recent art journal and decided that the cover should reflect my current interest in fully occupying my own life, mind, heart, and art!
So this is the cover. To create this book I took Gretchen's directions and went one step further. I had a pair of "7 Gypsies" book boards in my art stash which I really wanted to use, so I took a kids board book right apart and cut the pages to match. I love the size and the antique look of the cover. The hand is reaching down with a little card that says "celebrate" which of course is a very good concept.
Here's my first spread with my first revolutionary idea, which is to occupy the year with art or through art making, every day! It's a gift so why not enjoy the gift?
here as soon as possible.
Kind Over Matter blog, a real must read right now and often! Thanks to Gretchen who listed this blog as one of her many resources!)
LK Ludwig but if you want to try altering a kid's board book, just take a look at the easy-peasy directions in Gretchen's great "Ready for Revolution Art Journaling E-Book !
PS - The new year is just around the corner and I'm opening up the "class rooms" for this last run of the current eCourses. Yes, the two for one offer is still good.
