Book of Days 2014 week 1+2

My Book of Days Art journal:

Started with musical pages in my Book of Days post  from the lessons by Effy Wild.

First I made my own journal for these lessons

Using layers of paper and paint I decorated this journal

I had some plastic things from Christmas that I wanted to throw away
Saved only some gold glittered leaves and glued them to the cover

Ended up with a real nice looking art journal, if I may say so

It is not really finished because it needs a closure but I have no idea how thick it will get,
so I am saving that for later when it is completely full or may skip that.

Musical page about change for week 1

For my week 1 spread I used a drawing I made a while back and glued this to my background

My word for this year is change as you read in some older blogposts

And for these pages I used a few rearranged lines of the lyrics from Winds of Change by the Scorpions

Another musical page for week 2

A musical page with a face on old printed music page and this poem

Even when I am very sad
There is always music in my head
Music makes me wanna play
And all worries be far away
