Sometimes it doesn't take a lot to be happy.
I love saving interesting papers, and my drawers are so crammed, it's unbelievable. Everytime I go through them I find bits and pieces that I can already throw, but that doesn't even make a dent in all the paper I have! Sometimes, if there's a scrap or an especially interesting image, I'll stick it inside my journal, hoping for it to become a page later on.
Last week, as I opened my journal, two pieces of paper fell out. One was this girl, an image I had saved from an ad for a new yogurt place, and the other was this scrap of Basic Grey paper. I picked them up and just stuck them down, the I added the strings, that turned the circles into balloons.
I was happy with the page, and left it as it is, minimal, but pretty!
What do you think? is your art journal always busy?
