Misc Art Pages

 This page spread was inspired by the monologue of 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 from the message in a song by For King and Country called The Proof of Your Love. 



I've become obsessed with making art from found items such as magazines, old books, mail, maps, labels, sheet music, etc.



Some pages from my OLW gratitude journal:



And a page from my little altered book journal.

Quote: "Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away" ~Barbara de Angelis

  1. You have some beautiful pages here. I love the pages from your gratitude journal. When it comes to using found items, I find I am like a magpie sometimes and end up with drawers full of magazine pages, envelopes, book pages, etc and jars full of things found on the beach...but I love using them.
