My new favourite thing :)

Have you seen this site? It shows what you can do with just a newspaper and a marker - and there are some *fabulous* examples! As soon as I saw them (via Pinterest) I wanted to have a go; here's what I came up with:


For a first attempt, and using an article about gardening(!), I rather like it! This is definitely something I shall play with more :) It would be great for art journaling, and could be used on a layout for journaling with a particular feel. And it's just a lot of fun to play with the idea!

Anyone else had a go? Or inspired to try it - by the website, if not by my example lol?! Do tell, I'd love to see your work xx

I saw another example of this somewhere last week and thought it looked like a fun idea to try with some of the old books I picked up at a flea market to use for scrapping. Now, to find time to try it! :>)

Ha, this is cool. We did a project like this when I was at college. I've still got my work somewhere, in the loft... I painted some kind of picture on it too - can't quite remember the details though (long time ago lol!)

I like the story you told, with your piece of paper (what a funny difference in subject)
