Journal spread and more on the small art project

I'm having a wonderfully creative weekend and spent all of yesterday in my studio. One of the things I did was a new journal spread in my ALMBH journal. Last week I splurged on an incredible amount of art supplies on the internet (I had a little financial break, so I could afford it, yay) and I got this big paper pad by K&Company that had all their favorites in one special pack. This meant the pad was 360 pages! Yes you read it right, 360! The paper in this pack is not as thick as their regular paper (they usually have really good quality thick almost cardstock like paper), but that is exactly what makes it perfect for collage, so I didn't mind at all. Thinner paper is much easier to handle, and it's not really flimsy either, so I'm pretty happy with all these papers. Anyway...I just had to try some out in my art this weekend and this journal spread was the first use for them.

By the way: no, I am not a man hater, this spread just kind of evolved from the pictures and some found text. I just couldn't resist being sarcastic! ;-)

I also received my art from the very talented Kelley for Samantha Kira's small art swap. I'd take a picture of it, but why not just visit her blog where she put some much better pictures of it than I could ever take. This also gives you the chance to check out the other work on her blog, because she does some really cool art journaling. Go check it out and be in awe! She also put up some great pictures of my art work in another post which will only prove to you that she's a better art photographer than I am, haha.
