For most of my childhood and adult life, I’ve owned a cat. This page tells that story.
This journal page began its life as TWO journal pages: one featuring green Distress inks rubbed through a stencil, and one that had orange and yellow “leftover” ink smeared onto it from a previous project. I cut off the right side of the right page and re-attaching it to the left side, forming pockets on both the left and right sides. I trimmed the edge with washi tape and added some embellishments (stickers, shading, and a stenciled title. I went through my Artist Trading Card collection to find cat-themed ATCs in orange and green, and found three (the top and bottom ATCs are by Karen Robinson, and the center one is by Marcelle van den Berg). In the right pocket, I used a house die to cut out the shape of houses and journaled about my cat adventures on it.
I like the ATCs and house die cuts. Stuffing goodies in pockets is fun b/c it easily makes art journal pages more dynamic.
Yes, pockets are fun! They’re easy to make, and invite viewer involvement. Thank you for viewing my blog!
