Cosy Times


Hello hello, hope I find you well this week end, the sun is out and I am in the house playing and I don't care ha ha. I have been playing all morning and so I thought I would share something.

I love this new Journal for several reasons

  1. It's price (£2.50 Asda) Part of Walmart so you may be able to get it in USA?
  2. It's quality (really good)
  3. Great size (A5)
Where can you get a great journal like that for this price? I haven't seen any anywhere else. It's an A5 size and they come in three types un-ruled, ruled and graph. I bought two to start off. I have splashed water on the pages (a lovely cream colour) sprays and paints and they hold up pretty well. I would say the spays showed through the other side so I glued two pages together but this is my must buy art buy.

 
I have been using a transfer technique, tissue paper, and paint and gesso and brayer and, and, well you get the picture, lots of layers and this book held it's own very nicely ;0) I am playing along with Wild Precious group 52 Pages group and the word Cosy was the word to inspire. I have used these hot chocolate cups to list some of the things I find make me feel cosy. I hope you like my pages. Love Dawn xx

I love what you did with these pages - definitely sums up "cosy" for me too! And I'm going to have to check out that book - well, I'm in Asda shopping every week so it would be a crime not to, wouldn't it? Heather x

Great page, thanks for playing along. I love those little A5 journals from Asda, I have 3 of the plain ones and 2 of the graph ones.
