Collage Boards~~ A Cardboard Journal

Back in the November/December issue of Cloth Paper Scissors I saw a technique that I knew I had to try. The article was written by Katie Kendrick. Using plain old card board recycled from boxes and cheesecloth ( see previous post on my major score of cheese cloth ) she created a beautiful mixed media journal. The old world feel of her journal called out to me. Pictured above is my practice piece I made following her instructions in the article. I pretty much flew by the seat of my pants without any theme, making each page as I went with whatever I had on hand. Some of the pages I love and a few of them I could do without. Over all I am pleased with how it turned out. I've got a theme picked out for the next one and am busy collecting items to use.

My practice journal is small, 5 1/2 inches by 2 3/4. The next one will be a 5 x 7 and I will have more room to create in.

Here are a few of the pages.

Have a Happy Easter!
