we were fast friends and exchanged words of mutual adoration for each other's style. thus, we decided to collaborate on a project.
after brainstorming ways we could mix our art, we decided to create a traveling art journal.
the journal is divided into four sections: color, dreams, stories, and goals.
we are creating prompts for each other in each section and sending the book back and forth between virginia and california.
i purchased the journal in a local art store...
and i started the project by designing the title pages for color and stories...
we also decided to do a swap with the first round of the journal, so here is the fabulous combination of delights that she sent me...
i love it all, from the teeny tiny nail polish in baby blue to the cursive alphabet fabric. i wore the necklace to school today and the leafy book is now going to be my official garden journal.
here is the post of the swap treats i sent her. of course i absolutely had to send ms. pumpkin pie a jar of trader joe's delicious pumpkin butter!
oh, and heidi designed lovely title pages and beautiful work in response to my first prompts. the dog who dreams of wings melts my heart. <3
now that the journal is back in my possession, i have new pages to make.
i'm sooooo excited and i love this project.
heidi is a truly cool, charming, positive, and talented artist/friend/collaborator!
soon, i will send the journal back to her and when she gets it i will post my new pages.
