Itty Bitty Book Swap - Spring and Art Journal

I finished my Itty Bitty Book Swap spring pages.... here's a peek...
the forget me nots are on the back. I also decided I needed a new art journal that I could insert pages into. I was finding that I had a lot of loose pages with no where for them to end up. So here it is. My son recently destroyed his hardback dinosaur book by ripping off the covers, so I used those. Gesso and then decoupage.

Can you see the madonna and baby? I am always fascinated bymadonna and baby images...not sure why...
Inside front cover....and page of me and hubby I threw together because I had that photo laying around in a drawer. My 7 year old took it... I love it.


Another page....


And back cover.... you have seen these ledger pages before.... love the script.... and a lovely wallpaper rose.....


I also started my fabric journal! I have been wanting to make one since admiring one that Pam Garrison made..... but that is for another post! Have a great Tuesday!

Jenn, What a fabulous book. I have the same feelings about seeing Madonna and Child images. So much so, that when my dear Mother passed away many years ago...I picked out a gravestone that had a very large Madonna and Child image carved into the stone. Mom was very religious and loved those images as well.

Your art journal is so pretty! I want to start one! And I am always drawn to sister pictures like the one you used for your swap! :)

The art journal is so pretty and I love also that you reused your son's book.. I love the colors and images on the front. Takes a lot of patience to work on an art journal. Maybe that is why I have not done one yet.. You did a beautiful job. I would love to make one with fabric too.. I will have to see what you do when you post it..
