I DO Love Being a Part of Paper Whimsy

I thoroughly enjoy the various art exchange groups I belong to, and just this past week I joined another. Paper Whimsy has always been a favorite online source of collage sheets and other bits and baubles. The Paper Whimsy Ning Group also does not disappoint. What a warm, welcoming and highly creative group of people I've had the good fortune of getting to know. I highly recommend WhimsyLand to anyone looking for an inspirational, artistic home.
My first endeavor is the Whimsy Word Journal Swap. Each participant is to create a journal using found objects for the cover. I used bingo boards from an old Milton Bradley game. This is the journal I'll be sending to Sallie in California.

Welcome to the blogging world JoAnne! I love to follow creative people and see what they are doing. Your journal is very beautiful! It gives me an idea of making one for my son, who always carries a journal. He is a librarian and he loves Monopoly.... maybe I could do something with a Monopoly game board! I am a new blogger too, I just started in January. I will check back again, Colleen
