New Art Journal!

A new Art Journal has been born!
This time a much smaller one than my first one.
This will suit the smaller scale pages that I sometimes prefer.

 Here it is from the front.



Cardboard letters distressed with sandpaper and ink then glued on, 
and rub-on transfers.
Lykke = Happiness.

 I distressed a canvas picture.

Here I have glued a scrap from an old music book 
in a metal frame then painted it with glossy accents.

Oh and here is a before picture of the book.

And I have started on the inside too! hehe, 
here are some pages I have made so far...

 My 'lykketroll' (Happy troll)

 Here I have used Rub-ons, and loads of letter stickers, 

It reads;

'Ta det vakkert.
Det du gjør skal du gjøre 
uten å stresse,
men du skal likevel
ikke gjøre det 
for langsomt.
Det du gjør skal du gjøre
med ro og indre glede,
Og du skal gjøre det NÅ.'

'Take it beautifully. 
What you do must do 
do without the stress, 
but you should still 
not do it too slowly. 
What you must do
do with peace and inner joy, 
And to do it NOW'

I am so happy with my new Art Journal!
and look forward to many evening spent working in it.

Thank you so much for your comments they are much appreciated!

Have a lovley day!
