How things grow

Another little journal has evolved out of the mountain of paper and imagery which surrounds me, paper that has been created or collated by me. If there is an old piece of paper or ephemera which is in need of a home it will always find a home with me. In fact one of my favourite things is going to local second hand, (or as we call them in Australia "op shops") and seeing what treasure has been deposited recently. If you want to start finding interesting paper of your own, begin with the drawers and cupboards in your house, or better still your parents house and find a treasure trove of handwritten envelopes, and the old worn tatters from days gone by. One thing I would encourage you to do if you are using imagery is to  ensure that the images you use are out of print and copyright free.

This little journal has used all these things, scraps from old books, calendar numbers, images which I have hand painted and drawn, and especially gel prints. It  has all come together in a fat little book which is waiting to be written in with secret thoughts or encouraging quotes to live by. You can use the images as story starters or idea generators. There are 30 pages altogether, 60 sides.

These are some of the pages from this journal. A few are almost blank so you can render them yourself. I hope you like it and that it sparks some interest for you.

It is available here.
