Scrapbooks and journals
The greatest thing about the holidays is having time to do non-essential things. I've been doing my annual cull of my old magazines, ripping out pictures and pages that I want to keep. I've finally completed the enormous scrap book that I've had for the last 10 years. It's a very fat book, full of all the images that I've loved the most.I use it all the time, for the magazine, for ideas when I am making stuff and just for browsing when I feel like it.
Now I've started a new book, a lovely black bound volume for a bargainous £3.99 from Rymans (they do lovely journals). This time, I want to include some of my own paintings and sketches alongside the magazine inspiration.
Labels, tags, old birthday cards, they'll all be stored in here. I painted those fat peaches one summer in Spain.
Doodles from the other night, and things I've liked.
