The Art Journal peek – Documented Life weeks 7 & 8

I’d like to share the spread of weeks 7 and 8 in my little handmade journal.

It includes some goodies that I received from my friend Gabriele (her blog is worth a visit! artatag) mostly stamps on tissue paper – the pattern left of the pink birdie (one of my stickers :)) and the pens to the right (they came in handy as I am researching and trying to decide which of the following will be by new pen – narrowed down to those three. Any suggestions?!

Lamy Safari Fountain Pen, Blue (L14F)
KAWECO Classic Sport Fountain Pen Black, Medium Nib
Noodlers Ahab Fountain Pen Lapis Inferno

Also I’m still inspired by embroidery patterns – this time ‘Hungarian’


Oh – and the pink and orange papers are prints from my watercolor background (as tags and project life cards in my Etsy shop)
