From the White Book

The White Book continues steadily as I fill it up with my journaling and collages.

In all my artsy endeavours it is the journal that is like the baseline of everything, the one thing that keeps going no matter what. I like that. I also like that over time I have accumulated in books a sort of story of my life. It's like a reflection of me in words and images. It very literally is my life's work.

I always have this sense that if people want to know me they should just look at my journals. Not just a few spreads, but the entire collection. A spread is just a moment in time, like a picture, but all the books together are my movie. ;-)

The pictures on the fourth spread and the girls and doggy on the last spread were gifted to me by the wonderful Jennibellie. And she wondered if I would use them! Ha! ;-)

For those who want to know these things, the White Book is originally a Seawhite of Brighton sketchbook and measures 25x25 cm (10x10 inches). It's getting really thick already and I'm nowhere near finished yet. I think by the time I'm done with it, it will be impossible to close, but for this once I will consider that a good thing!

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy weekend, make it a good one!
