recently aimee at welcome to artsyville started a "glue it tuesday" on her blog. while i have done a lot of gluing lately i have not linked to her site before. you can see pics of some of my recent gluing at this post good morning.
mostly i just glue on what ever is handy, cardstock, loose journal pages, index cards, etc. and while i am really good at starting projects, hehehe, i don't finish a lot of them. i like to make backgrounds but i'm not really a journaler. hence, i have a lot of lot of loose sheets of collage/paintings started. they are all over the place so i decided this morning to make a small book to use just for glue it tuesday. i started with an empty box from my latest treat, aka unhealthy indulgence. i cut off one side and the top and bottom and had this:
then i started gluing. i used pieces of wrapping/found paper, ledgers and pieces of my art work for the cover.
i used a piece of deli wrap from a gelli print session for the inside. loooove it. i have really come to like the red and aqua/turquoise color combination lately. i want to use it in my house.
now i just have to find some papers to make signatures and sew them in. next week i will be ready to rock and roll.
p.s. please forgive the pics. the sun is not around to this side of the house yet and i was too lazy to get up and go somewhere else.
