Happy Weekend!

I took a much needed day off from work. I got up early and went hiking with a friend at Santa Monica Conservancy Parkland. We took the Vanalden Vista trail. It was a great reminder that there are still places like this in Los Angeles.

New Lunch Time Collage Art Journal


I marked all the pages in the Mini Art Journal with lunch time collages. I want to continue this practice since I will be working mostly from home for the time being. I made a new art journal in a different format.

Process Video - making a lunch time collage


This is a short process video showing how I create my lunch time paper only collages. I have 30 minutes for lunch so I usually don't spend too time to overthink the process of creating each collage. Instead of narration, I decided to add music. I asked my multi-talented friend, Gene Brown, if he would compose music to accompany the video. Thankfully, he agreed. His song beautifully compliments my video.

Mini Journal - Coptic and French Link Stitches


This mini journal was made for a friend's birthday. I used the traditional Coptic and French Link binding method instead of SeaLemon's version that I used here and here. Since this journal is small (3" x 4"), I wasn't concerned about the cover and signatures not being structurally stable. 

I'm in a bookbinding/journal making zone lately and I'm loving it!
