“Equine Sun”

collage, 7 1/2″ x 10″

Being not rich, I decided to create my own way cool journals for Christmas gifts one year. I’m always looking at the beautiful journals in the stores, but I never want to pay money for them. I kept thinking, “I could make that”. So I did! I collaged straight onto the cover of an art tablet, then covered the cover with clear contact paper.

Collage on marbleized paper,    5 1/2″  x  8″

So I marbleized this paper 20 years ago! And some of the girls have been waiting to be used  for about the same amount of time. This collage is the first time I have used a haiku in my work.

What title should I give this?

“The Fly” just seems too obvious and simple. Maybe it should be something like, “She Never Knew Her Sister Hated Her”…..

“Cleopatra Dreams of Bicycles”

collage,  Approx  5″  x  7″

 

When I go into bookstores, I can’t help but stare at all the beautiful writing journals. I love the various rich covers and I want to buy every single one! I can’t seem to spare the money to buy one; and, who wants the same journal someone else has?  AND, they always have lines in them.

This year I decided to make homemade journals for Christmas gifts. This one, Cleopatra II ( see April 19) , and Equine Sun (March 20 post) all were homemade journals for family members.
