Pizzaboxes recycled...

I started a new journal: a pizzabox journal! Not that I didn't have any journals to work in any more...but simply because I wanted to try something new. Apperently I'm not a person for a thick, fat journal with lots of pages but more a person of themed journals, with only a few pages...
I cut pages (size 24x24cm), leaving the fold from the box as it is and so I created a double page, with four sides to work on. I have decided to wait till I have finished enough pages before binding the journal.
I created a cover of a bigger pizzabox, but I still have to decorate this.
I cut three pizzaboxes, creating 3 times 4 pages and applied gesso to all of the pages. One afternoon I sat down with all my acrylic paint and randomly painted the pages with my fingers, trying to use lots of colors and shapes. (Good therapy, I can tell you, when you have lots of personal issues going on!)

Inspired by Kate Crane and Dawn DeVries Sokol I started doodling and adding text and images to my pages. I used Sharpies, Prismacolor pencils, washitape, rubons, a Faber Castell Pitt pen and a white marker.
Here are the first three pages:

So far, I'm very happy with how it all turned out. Hopefully more to show soon!

Doodling faces

Size A4. I cut out a black and white picture from a face in a magazine, glued it in my journal and simply doodled on top.

Same here...only now I cut the face in pieces before glueing it in my journal and added some color and text to my doodling.
