New Journal Pages & Mini Book

I've completed a few more doll journal pages. Lately, each of my art journal pages includes one of my hand drawn Paige dolls.
I hope to scan these pages and turn them into greeting cards or tags or maybe notebook covers.
I scanned one of my journal pages and reduced it in size to 2.5" x 4" and made a cover to this mini book.
It's a cute little book that I can art journal in. The inside pages are actually index cards covered with used back drop paper and journal pages.
Here's a few photos of how it started.
Cut out three pieces of heavy cardboard.
 Cover each piece with paper.
And glue together. 
On another note, I had this piece of card board scrap that I decided to paint on...
Sometimes items you just play around with, turn out to be something worth saving. I found that drawing flowers with your non-dominant hand makes for the best art work.

And last, but not least, our team won in the company Gingerbread house contest, for Best Originality. We made a miniature version of the flag ship William Sonoma store on Union Street, San Francisco. 
Here's what the real store looks like...
I also won this year's annual cookie contest, Peanut Butter Crunch Bars...yippee! Sorry, I forgot to take a picture. But I'll make them again for our family xmas party and will take a picture and share the recipe.

Have a great week!


  1. WOW, love your new journal pages with the bold flowers and Paige
    dolls. Interesting tip of using your non dominant hand to paint the
    flowers. Your mini journal book is adorable with your reduced journal page - perfect! Brilliant idea making a version of the W-S flagship
    with the Gingerbread house. Congrats on winning the annual cookie
    contest - can't wait to try it!
