For some time now, I've enjoyed Lori Vliegen's art journalling, and especially the pages she's done in her copy of Sherwood Forlee's Walls Notebook . So, you can imagine my delight when I found this pristine copy of the Walls Notebook in a garage sale book bin for only 50¢! I'm not a garage sale shopper for the most part, but this is another perk of walking a dog on weekend mornings.
I've decided to use it to record some of my favourite quotes, so I created my personal 'title page' on the blank page opposite the copyright page.
It started as just a plain yellow brick wall, so I wrote in the text, framed it with some doodled lines and then attached it to the wall with some short chains.
A bit more colour and some shading and it's done. I think this will be a fun way to play with my 'artful' writing while recording some favourite quotes along the way.
