Some New Books

This week my creative time was spent 
making some new little books. 

You can see the one I made and filled earlier this year, 
and the two new ones ...... waiting to be filled.

These books are quite small

and have accordion style pages. 

I am now debating  
whether to put them up for sale
or fill them myself.  

I want to share another NEW book. . . . 
Roxanne Evans Stout's new book has just been released in the U.S.A.
 and will be available in Canada in a couple of weeks.

I can't wait to see it!
Not only because she included a creation of mine in it,
 but because I LOVE everything Roxanne creates, 
and know that there will be so much to enjoy 
in both the images and the words.

A Stack of Journals

Here are the journals that I have on the go. 
Actually the top one is full and I blogged about it not long ago.

The next one in the pile is a handmade book
I made a few years ago. 

 I decided to use it to stick bits of leftover pieces
that end up on my desk in
and then draw or paint or collage from there. 

The next book in the stack is one I have shared before
and I haven't added anything in it this year yet.... hopefully soon!

I have been taking an online class with Katie Kendrick
in which we used an old book to collage bits of paper to, 
and  then painted or collaged onto.

This is the final book of the stack.
I shared a few pages that I completed in it here 

All but one of these journals was started in 2016.
So many pages yet to fill..... so little creative time!

About Little

Another Little Creation

made with layers of paper glued down 
to a base of folded watercolour paper
with added gesso, paint and graphite

I am beginning to realize that I often work little
as I only have little bits of creative time. 
I wonder if I would work bigger if I had big chunks of creative time?

In Love With Little - Part Two

I started this little journal early in the new year,
and shared some images then. 

And here it is not even the middle of  February
and I have finished it!

I can strike one New Year's Resolution off the list already!

And that my friends is why I love working little!

(although I have already started 3 other new journals 
- but none of them will be finished in 2016!)
