Turn over a new leaf.

Autumn is such a beautiful season with leaves turning golden and fiery reds, browns and oranges.This journal is made up of 16 sheets of blotting paper, between which fresh spring leaves can be pressed, or autumn leaves can be pasted or collaged. Please keep to two facing pages because of the limitations of the small volume. Blotting paper is quite thick and more sheets would have crowded the binder. The inside and outside back covers are also available to decorate.Please send it on promptly and to where-ever it is requested, it is light and postage should not be excessive. I have included a bookmark with 3 urls for journallers and my bio states my journalling guidelines. Please have fun with your page, don’t alter the work of others unless it is to add to the cover, and allow others to share the journal. I will mooch it back when it is completed.

The Illustrated Home Library Encyclopedia Vol. 2 AMM to AZT

This is a book I have started to alter and I want everyone else to have fun with it. I have already glued the pages together and it is ready for you to gesso or scrap it or paint it or whatever! The pages that the book is “opened” to are topics like…Ammunition Amphitheater, Amsterdam, Amundsen, Anchovy, Andalusia, Fra Angelico, Animal life, Anteater, Antelope, Antenna, Saint Anthony, Susan B. Anthony, Anthrax, Anthropology, Apricot, April, April Fools’ Day, Aptitude tests, Aquamarine, Aquaplaning, Arabia, Archaeology, Archery, Archimedes, Argentina, Arizona, Armistice, Armor, King Arthur, Artichoke, Artificial Respiration, Assyria, Aster, Asteroid, Asthma, Astigmatism, Athlete’s Foot, Athletics, Atlanta, Austria, & Aviation (with pictures of Icarus & how men came to fly).
So, if any of those are something you would like to work into your work go for it! I have NOT Gesso’ed any of the pages, just the cover, so you can cover the pages completely or use the pictures or words on the page as part of your work. You can scrap right over them or paint them over… Again, whatever floats your boat. (worried you don’t have gesso? Regular house paint will work too!)
Get as creative as you would like, add a drawing, write a poem or a thought. Anything and everything goes! From collages, photos, ACEO, altered art, scrapbooking, & quotes, to anything else that “floats your boat”. Please stick to two pages (a double spread) in the journal per person- I would like as many people as possible to share! but, if you just have to do another page- go for it. Feel free to use the pages on the inside covers too! You DO NOT have to go in order, jump around and pick the pages you want to work on.
I left the front & back covers incomplete, so everyone can add one or two items as a collective artwork. I think it would be fun to start your cover artwork by using someone else’s cover art for your inspiration. This way it would be a chain of creativity that you could see.
Please keep this for a maximum of 2 weeks and then list it again! Thanks!
Please be respectful. Don’t write on the same page of someone else’s contribution, and don’t change or add to anyone’s entry. (Except, of course, for the cover art work.) Just be courteous of others.
If you feel up to it, share something about you…as little or as much as you want! It would be nice to put your name, state or country, date your work & use your bookmooch info. If you do Artist Trading Cards send one to me via my contact info in the book and I will gladly send you one of mine.
When this journal is full, PLEASE CONTACT ME, VelcroDog, AND I WILL MOOCH IT BACK FROM YOU!
Have at it friends! Enjoy!
PS. Yes, I have a weimaraner (aka Velcro Dogs)
