guest post- a look at a simple painted beach journal from Jill Berry

I have asked a few of my creative friends to help me out with my blog here and there during my time with a new baby and today's guest post comes to you from Jill Berry


Paint the colors of the beach, horizontally on a long piece of paper


Scrape the paint upwards, toward the sky


Fold in half, softly, to transfer the paint to the other side


Add salt or alcohol while the paint is wet to add texture


fold and stitch into a soft cover journal.


Jill Berry is an author, teacher of bookmaking, painting, mapmaking, artist’s books, journaling and storytelling structures. Lives in Superior, Colorado with two kids, one husband, and one big zen poodle.

Upcoming book, Personal Geographies: Explorations in Mixed-Media Mapmaking due 11/11
