Today Bleubeard and I are joining Mary (an imaginary Art Journal Journey student) as she shares her diary, along with a one pound container of whole bean coffee.
Mary's proud of her parents because they joined the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and are actively involved in publishing this cookbook.
It's not just an ordinary cookbook,
as these pages that describe coffee grinders show.
Various coffee grinders from this and previous centuries are included. Mary thinks every parent should be involved with their school PTA. Bleubeard and I think you should join us at Art Journal Journey where we're celebrating heading Back to School.
For this spread, I started by painting the gessoed page with green acrylic craft paint. When dry, I added images from Chapter 4 of a high end cookbook that included tools one would need to create each recipe.
Years ago I received a sample recipe book, and I cut it apart. When I ran across the remains I had not used in other art, I decided to use the cover for this spread. I hid the word "sample" with a row of ribbon numbers.
Now it's time to share your drink related post. Any post is possible and acceptable, as long as you can relate it back to a drink, any drink. It can be a postcard, a movie, a painting, a sketch in your sketchbook, an altered book page, a digital, hybrid, or traditional journal or scrapbook page, or photos of your time out and about. Once you link, Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be around to visit.

Art, including the journey, background techniques, new experiments, photos, failures, and successes will be shared on this site. I have removed my e-mail address until such time as I can get it to work again. Thank you for understanding. You can always leave a note on my blog and I will visit you.
