It's all about STEve

You know those Smash Books that are being sold in shops that are basically bunch of scrapbook paper and other junk bound together? Well, I made my own. Two of them actually. :)
Amy inspired me after watching her free live video workshop the other day. It's really so freaking easy it's ridiculous. :) I have so much scrapbook paper laying around that I don't use anymore and this is a great way to use it up. I chose the ugliest papers of the bunch so I won't have trouble painting over it and bound them together.

I actually have the binding machine at home but if you don't, just go to your local copy shop and they'll do it for you.
And this is the first painting in it. Of course inspired by Amy and her FREE workshop called STEve's ARTFIRe. :)
Now I'm off to check out Friday's Party People. :)

  1. Ja doma narejene "Smash books" so veliko boljše od kupljenih! Sama je še nisem naredila ampak to imam v letošnjem ustvarjalnem planu!
    Tvoje slikarije so čudovite!

  16. I have to admit I bought a Smash book just because it was so cute and I found it at a weak moment in the store. I've made some of my own journals, too, though. Yours are really nice!
