You've Got To Love Garage Sales...

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.


  1. Linda I love your style of writing- I've come to know it as yours! What a cool find! 50cents? SCORE!!!

  2. Wow, great find! I have followed Lori's blog for quite some time and enjoyed her creativity with this book. I look forward to seeing what you do in it.

    1. Yes, it was a lucky find. I'll have fun with this over time.

  3. Linda! Me too! I learned shadowing from Lori! And she gave me permission to use a card I made for mothers' day based on her style! She is a sweetie pie! Love what you did with the book!
