So I grabbed this old watercolor paper sketchbook that I had been thinking I could tear out the pages, alter them, then stitch them back together as a journal. What I always hated was the fact that the binding on the sketchbook was already the ring binding I wanted, but that it had such a flimsy cover.
But, yeah, the cover definitely needed improvement, so I slapped on some patterned paper.
Then embellished some more. And, voila, I have an art journal for our Singapore trip.
I love the 7Gypsies sticker words that were already next to each other, but seemed appropriate: "random spontaneous crossroads". Then, below it, I added "take time".
It reminded me of those fridge magnet poetry kits they used to sell with random words in it.
