ETA: More pics can be found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=389734

I finally decided to post a few pictures from my art journal. I've been working on this for the last few years. I add to it slowly over time. It's a very good companion on car rides and vacations!

A note about this journal: I made pretty much everything. I made the journal itself and its cover and the collaging is done with bits and pieces of everything under the sun, collected and stored in overflowing boxes. I probably have enough paper bits to collage my next five journals. But will I stop collecting? NO! That's just crazy talk....






















Page on the left is a love letter to my husband.




Page on the right features an EKG I did on myself in A&P class.

Thank you so much for sharing your journal! It's beautifull! I love making journals like that too. I recently have had some creative blockage so I am doing a Wreck This Journal to get it flowing again, so seeing your pages was very inspiring!

I got one of those royalty free clipart books filled with butterflies. It was the best thing I ever bought because now I have an infinite supply of wings.
