{in the studio}...

I've been  inspired.  So into the studio I went to begin
a small art journal.  More on the inspiration with the completed journal.
For now a sneak peek and a look into
my creative process.
This is where I am at now.
 The book is only 6" x 3.5"
and 10 pages in length ~ counting the covers.
The layers are building and the pages are nearing their final appearance.
I still want to make a few more edits and additions before assembling the book.
But hope to have it completed soon.
The following 3 photos show the earlier beginnings.
 It can be really hard for me to cover up the lower layers as
I tend to like a simple look.
 But all the layers add a greater mysterious beauty that draws you
even deeper into the pages, so cover them up I do.  Perhaps that's why I
photograph them now so I can enjoy them too.
Except for the inspiration photo I am using only what I have on hand.
And because of  it's small size I can use up lots of remnants.
Can you see my little helpers paw?

What a wonderful book....but isn't that ball of yarn too much temptation - with kitty paws and all?

This is lovely and I am so inspired now to try and make something like this! I even have a couple of helpers...:-) Love the kitty paw!
