Recently I wrote about Karla's "Nature's Blessings" swap here. You may remember, I had a great deal of angst as to whether or not my pages would stack up. Well,my book arrived -- and I'm not sure they do!
Karla did the cover art (and also included one of her famous doodle pages) and put together the books, using the pages provided by six different swappers.
The idea was to have some pages that were fully decorated...
And some that gave the recipient room to write or draw or a spot to store treasures.
Here are some more of the pages I received.
Not everyone's was signed -- or if it was, it was very discreet. (I think I signed mine but now I'm not sure!)
But what you are seeing here represents Lisa Phillippi, Jill Sibbab (lilyclaire by jill) Rondamum, Diana Kelly, Karla and two mystery artists! Whomever you are, I love every single page by all of you!
Karla is offering an inexpensive tutorial ($15) on how to put together not only a book that is "built" like this one, but also several other versions of art journals.
Most of them are, like this one, "new sew." All are beautiful.
If this is your "thing," check it out. Karla has wonderful descriptions and downloadables that will make your project extra easy and extra fun!
