I have begun the begine!  Here are my first ten pages. I am timid at first, leaving a lot of white space, but I imagine I will "get going" after awhile.  I hope the last one is not offensive to anyone...



tree seeds, apple seeds, and birch bark-
















so, thanks for looking.  I hope the next batch I post will be an improvement...

I hope you don't mind, but I'd love to join in - you've inspired me to get creative! I usually hate using new books, with blank pages, but somehow recycling an old book into inspirational art is therapeutic!

Here are some pages I have done already...

Purple & Green:


Purple


Green


Orange


Merlin (inspired by the myths challenge... I need something to go with this though for the other page)


Flames


With the flames page, I had the idea to do a double spread for the 4 elements - earth, water, fire and air, so that is what I'm working on now...

Thank you  Smiley The book I'm using is 'Over the Water' by Maude Casey, and it's a Children's book about an Irish girl.

mpemporium, I really like your pages so far! welcome aboard!

and blupaisan that page with the skull looks very cool.

I've been experimenting with actual writing in my journal, which felt good, but I may cover it over because it's pretty personal and I want to be able to show anyone this book.

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

Two more pages for me - this first one was upside-down on purpose so it would be awkward to read, I still may cover the words later on, but for now it's done.



The second one started with me playing with my insect stickers.



The braid that runs across the page ends in a little bead. At first I was very shy about having things hang off the page, but now I really like it!
