"ART" Journal

This week at Simon Says Stamp Challenge the theme is "Show a Word". The word I chose is 'ART'.

I picked up this little cardboard book at Michaels for $2.00. Fell in love with it because it had 100 empty kraft paper pages. Immediately I knew it would be perfect for me to keep my art journal, with all my little technique notes and such. But first I had to make it "ME". So I altered the cover with some mulberry paper and this beautiful ribbon, then added the brass letters , butterfly and flowers. Added a little key to the ribbon that acts as the book binding and.... ta da !
