"It will probably be a long time before men can make anything that is quite as good for you as real sunshine and fresh air."
- The Healthy Life Series, 1940
This week's prompt at Illustration Friday is FRESH. Thought I'd veer away from the girls for a little something different.
I've started a new art journal in an old book - Kim is a huge fan of ephemera and old things and started me on my own love of crusty items that could use some more love.
It is easy to turn an old book into an art journal by simply gluing several pages together with a glue stick and then coating with gesso. Now that it is back to school time you can pick up gobs of gluesticks at bargain prices.
This book can sit on the shelf and no one is the wiser as to its true contents unless I want to share with them. Despite the fact that I share on this blog I am actually very reticent to show my stuff to the people in my everyday life (except for my immediate family) and very few people even know that I dabble in paint regularly.
