Sketchbook Project Fun Journal: Day 14

Day 14

Sharing another page from my Sketchbook Project Fun Journal today. If you look back over the previous pages, you’ll see I went in a totally different direction with this one and I really like it. I love using up scrap deli papers that have been used as paint pallets or worktable protection. I learned this trick from Roben-Marie Smith. Roben-Marie is such a dear and so incredibly talented. I'm happy to have had the chance to spend time with her in person!

For this page, I started with a map scrap (I’m addicted to maps), and then just added the used deli paper and did some stenciling over that. I love letters and numbers too and find that I pop them into my work pretty regularly.

Speaking of which….I just signed up for the Sketchbook Project 2012. I know that my track record for this so far is rather poor, given that I signed up for both 2010 and 2011 and didn’t finished either book on time (okay, I’ll admit I never even got started on the 2010 book), but I’m a glutton for punishment and willing to give it a go again! My theme for the 2012 book is “Writing on the Wall.” I thought that was the perfect choice for me with my love of words and letters. Anyone else signed up for 2012 yet?

Hi Kelly! This journal page is so great! I have been trying to work in a journal, but sometimes I just get block. Hopefully when we leave for vacation I will have some time to relax and "just do it! " Thank you for visiting my blog today!
