A Page for Four-Letter Words

Mostly cut & paste with a bit of doodling and stamping mixed in. Some of the word groupings are intentional, some random.

For some crazy reason, I am drawn to read the words on the page over & over again. Hmmm ...

Oh yeah, and 0 4 5 9 are the only four letter numbers. Oddly, there are four of them. Maybe they would be good Pick-4 numbers to play.

Junk Mail Journal Page

Awhile back I made this little art journal from my junk mail. I gathered all the little postcards and cardstock weight ads that collected near my computer, cut the larger ones down to size, and punched and bound them into a little book.

This page is my most recent & is made up of collage, paint and doodles. All of the text was cut from junk mail. The doodles were drawn on the pattern side of security envelopes from junk mail. The page itself started out as a sales postcard.

More of my junk mail journal can be seen here:

Color This Entire Page

This was an easy one for me. I love filling a page with doodles. This was drawn mostly with Sharpies.

WTJ: Stain Log

An odd experiment.

This page includes the following stains: chocolate syrup, blueberry, green colored sugar, iodine, cherry popsicle, grape jelly, tangerine fruit bar, cinnamon, vanilla shimmer shower gel, ink, Heinz ketchup, grape popsicle, mustard, coffee, nail polish, and some candy Halloween sprinkles.

Iodine is my favorite. It was black when I stained the page & every day it gets just a bit lighter.

I sealed the sticky stains with a clear acrylic coat.
