Ribbon-filled Canvas Book

Art journal

Art /Quote Journal bound and decorated with ribbon
.

Women and Art.That
is the subject covered in the documentary

WHO
DOES SHE THINK SHE IS?

It is about
artists who refuse to choose between mothering and creativity.After watching this documentary all I really
wanted to do was to listen to my own voice and make something. Anything.Pulling out paints, buttons, ribbons, ink,
watercolor crayons – I played. Created for myself.

 I ended up making an Art/Quote Journal out of a canvas
album.  This book is bound, filled and
decorated with my favorite May Arts ribbons.
It is similar to a fabric book for children that teaches concept, except
this book is for me.  I filled it with my
own words.  Lessons that I want to always
be aware of — my own wise words.

From me, To me. From me, To you.

I invite you to let yourself play and make something just
for you.

Unleash your creativity!
