"Life is like topography, Hobbes.
There are summits of happiness and success,
flat stretches of boring routine
and valleys of frustration and failure."
This 8x12" (open) industrial catalog is filled with heavy duty cardstock and covers that fold out. What a find! I found 3 in mint condition in a recycle area at work about 5 years ago, and grabbed them, thinking they would be good for some sort of kid project. That was before I'd even heard of altering a book, or art journaling, for that matter. I was too busy analyzing numbers I suppose.
Did you ever start art journaling and just got in the flow? It happened a few weeks ago when I started playing around with this catalog. The kids and I were busy going through clothing catalogs, cutting out words and images. They like to make "pretend people" with random clothing and people. I wonder where they got that idea? So I kept gluing and gluing, a dozen pairs of collaged pages. I shared a few of these pages a while back, but I wanted to show them all together.
