A few weeks ago I made a Garden-themed Art Journal, using a saltine cracker box, needle and thread, glue, and papers from Auntie Bridgett’s cupboard. Here is what it looks like so far.
The cover is pretty with flowers, with a recycled tote bag handle for a tie.
Since I am using the journal to keep track of our allotment plot in the community garden, I put in what we want to plant. Acrylic paints applied with a credit card make for interesting swooshes.
Then I got really artsy, and designed a fold-out page of what I hoped the garden would look like. This is optimistic, but I am really happy with how it looks.
And of course, a shopping list.
I can’t wait to be able to add pictures of actual plants! I will keep you posted of how things progress.

This is turning out nice
Thanks so much! My friend Ruth Inman got me started on artsy stuff last year when everything shut down, and I just can’t stop!
