The Noticing Journal {an Altered Book Journal} #1

 

 

I'm calling this new project an "altered book art journal" because I'm taking a hardback {$2 at the bookstore} and using it as an art journal. Past books I've altered into journals have been my absolute favorites. They are so quirky, so imperfect. I'm calling this my Noticing Journal because I want to journal about stuff I notice, little things. The photo of birds on a wire was taken while I was waiting at a traffic light on a busy day. They were so calm and pretty. The other pages were done separately (usually I'll do both sides at once). I found the watermelon seed packet in a drawer I was cleaning out this week. And I have finally purchased some washi tape and used it on an art journal page.
