Another Mash Note Journal Page, and Playing with Old Jeans

I’ve been digging around in the bags of old clothes and jeans that I save for projects.  Kids outgrow them, a knee gets torn up, a tee shirt gets worn out.  It all ends up in my bags of Art Fodder™, thrown out in the stacks in my garage…

So I found some cute sparkly jeans, and a denim drawstring from some unknown pair of jeans, long ago separated from its counterpart.

The cute tiny marriage certificate from an antique bridal book and the love letters are scanned, re-sized, and printed from my stacks of ephemera.

I needed some play time in my journal today.  And writing another mash note keeps my hubby walking around smiling.

Prompt:  Focus on what your significant other means to you.  Paint or color your journal page while you’re thinking.  Let the colors and/or words come to you as you’re pondering.  And how could you use some old jeans to make something fun in your art journal??

  1. I use a lot of old clothes for my projects. I usually attach pieces of cloth from vintage stuff to paper with half and half glue and cut them up to collage. I usually stamp the paper and cut up the shape of the stamp.

    • Hi Patsy,

      Thanks for visiting! It’s so nice to find a good use for all of the old clothes 🙂 I’ve only just started playing in my bag of saved clothes for my art journaling, and I love that I’m incorporating something my loved ones were once wearing.
