Finished Waterfall Journal Flip Through

Ciao dear hearts!

I am packing and still hoping for a house 

in the Fort Collins, CO 



So art time is at an all time minimum..

but I have finished these and it seems that I rarely share finished

work with you..

for one thing, I want everyone to do their own work and find their own style

rather than copying my work


this is an important topic..

The War in Ukraine.

Mini Waterfall Book


Let's make a mini book..

this is a book inspired by an IG 

account,  PastandPages..

She makes large waterfall journals..

and I thought it would be fun to make tiny books 

in the same way..

try it and play with it..

I love making them.. fast, easy and lots of space..

How NOT to make a Junk Journal

Ciao dear ones..

How NOT to make a Junk Journal
