My Favorite Art Journal......

......so far, at least, is the one I put together using some of my own pages, and pages I've received from friends.  Some were fully worked on two sided journal pages, some were backgrounds with art on one side only.  I blogged about the journal here, and loved it then.  But now....boy oh boy, if that was love then this is out of control obsessive all encompassing LOVE!!  The blank pages are blank no longer, and I've included the tags I've received as well.

I do intend to do some actual journaling (you know, put pen to page and write words), but honestly, this is stunning just as it is.  I might be biased, of course, as the pages were done by some of my favorite peeps in the world.  I even included some stuff done by friends who are not in the group, just because I had to include them somehow.

Well, enough blabbering.  Here it is, from cover to cover.

good morning Eileen,

all I can do is admit you are completely right about this book !

It's so nice to see all the different pages in this , wat you can definitely call an " artbook". Adding the tags on the pages, in pockets,..create an interactive feel.

The book is a feast for the eyes, a source of inspiration, an ornament to display in your house and enjoy every time you pass by !

The binding you did even makes it more worth !

Enjoy !
greetings from belgium
