Mix It Up #13 & Handmade Journals

Mix It Up #13 is up! I had really fun with this one! Our assignments was to use a cover of a Dr. Seuss book as inspiration and also include a quote by Dr. Seuss on our page.

I chose "The Lorax" because the trees on the cover reminded me of the palm tree in this picture of Owen and his Orangutan Diorama. I also found a Dr. Seuss quote that talked about learning and referred to animals . . . PERFECT!!! I also tried to use a lot of heavy black-lined elements, so it had a cartoon feel. Here's my page! Everything here is from the Noel Mignon Lovely Day Kit.

I made some covered journals for my friends this week. I had fun using up some stash and trying a bunch of different patterned papers. I kept the design the same on every on for simplicity. It's been a long time since I've done these! They were pretty fun! Here they are:
