Hey Ya's! Happy Halloween! Will any of you be doing anything special for Halloween? :) We'll be out Trick or Treating with Bodhi .. and I'll let you know how it goes on my next post. hehehe!
So, I have started on an art journal for my special little Bodhi and hope to give it to him when he gets older. This is actually a story book of his that he no longer reads and I found it the perfect size to alter.
I'll fill it with inspirational quotes and verses .. and these will be things I want for him throughout his life. I don't know how long it will take for me to complete his journal .. but it's okay .. this is something I don't want to rush. I may do one layout page next month or next year .. it does not matter .. it will be his for him to keep.
I had grunge in mind when I made this cover .. I wanted it to be worn and tattered .. like an old book that has well kept secrets of the heart ...
I made quite a bit of mistakes during this process (for example the pinkish sections were supposed to be rusty RED, lol!) .. but then I realized .. "This is a book that will be filled with things about life. And one of the major things to learn in life .. is that we all will MAKE mistakes. "Reflect on it, absorb it .. and Move Forward ... "
Of course I was inspired by Tim Holtz and Finnabair. Vintage, Antique, Grungy, Worn, Old .. I love their styles and products!
Thank you for sticking with me on such a long post! hehe! Wishing you all a SAFE & HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Thank you for visiting me and I'll see you again soon!
