Autumn is here in full swing, the trees half bare with their colourful foliage, and the rain has arrived. Chilly days, grey skies, and rain.
Today was the perfect day to curl up with my small, strange cat Murial, a cup of tea and toast with marmalade and look through some old favourite books to gain a little inspiration. I picked up Visual Chronicles by Linda Woods and Karen Dinino, I had forgotten about how much I enjoy this book!
And I'm super excited to see her new book, Journal Revolution:
Visual Chronicles has some great collage techniques that are so easily explained -- photos and step-by-steps makes it super easy to understand -- and some new perspectives on projects for things that I'd normally never approach or try on my own. And how can you not love a book that has great projects, like altered shoes, in it? :) I love the involved simplicity of the journals in this book. I love the idea of keeping journals. I start journals all the time. But rarely, do I ever continue through with those projects -- reading
Visual Chronicles makes me want to tackle a journal project, fresh and ready to actually finish it! :)
(Maybe that would make a good project for our next rainy day?)
