Art Project Book

I love Paperchase!  I can rarely go past one without going in and admiring all those lovely pens and notebooks ..... *sigh* ... there's just something so appealing about pretty stationery!  It must be a girl-thing, neither my husband or son get it at all ... a pen is a pen and a book is a book!  They are just soooo wrong!

Anyway, I found this perfect little 'project book' with pre-printed pages where I can organise and plan all my art projects and make notes, sketches etc etc.  The only problem was that I wasn't overly keen on the cover, but decided to buy it anyway and paint it!  Well, being a mixed media artist comes in handy sometimes!

So, here is the final result ...

I even went the whole hog and painted it shades of pink/purple and added some fluffy strings and ribbons!  Tut tut ... such a girl!  But I love it and now I have a totally unique and quirky project book!  I  think I might need to go back to Paperchase and find a fluffy pen to match .... ; )

Happy painting ...

  2. No Paperchase here. :-( Love how you took the journal and made the covers your own. Love all the pink and purple!
