New Composition Book Journal

I recently started a new journal.  This one I'm going to devote to one of my favorite things - OWLS.

I'm using a Composition notebook I got a couple months ago during back to school supply sales..

I'll decorate the cover farther along in the process when inspiration for the cover strikes me.  I've been gluing pages together (I use a good glue stick and put glue on both pages before pressing together) and gessoing pages in preperation for creating.  I've also put a few pockets in the book usung washi tape.

The first page has a pocket holding very special postcard my friend Barb sent me.

The postcard is made from a series of collages Barb was doing and posting on her blog HERE.   I loved the owl so much I asked to trade her postcards.  Here's her postcard front and back, as well as the ATC she created to tuck in the belly band she put on back of postcard:

The last image I have to share with you today is a journal page I did using one of my favorite owl quotes.  The background was done with watercolor pencils.  The owl image is cut out from a catalog (I believe it was Pottery Barn).  The letters were printed out on white cardstock, cut out and edged with ink.  All were glued in place with a glue stick.  Last step was to cover with Golden Matte Medium.  In between the phrases looked like too much space, so I found a brown pen and added some scribbles.

Thanks for taking a look!


  1. Kimber, I love seeing what you did with the postcard I sent you! What a neat book you've begun. Can't wait to see more as you keeping working on it. Such a fun idea, too.

  2. Such a great idea! Looking forward to seeing what you will do next!

  3. Hey Kimber...
    I'm so glad to see you back in blogland, especially with a new OWLS journal in the works. I hope we see more of it as you go along...and I love the COLOR of that turquoise page.
