Hello friends. Because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, I've been quarantined at home for fifty-nine days now and away from my job for the same number of days. Today I'd like to show you another page in the vintage Boorum & Pease Miniature Account Book that I am repurposing into a collage journal.

In the early 1970s the Polaroid SX-70 instant film camera was a big sensation. I still have quite a few photographs of myself that were taken in the mid-1970s with an SX-70, so the images I used in my collage journal, above, had meaning for me. If you aren't familiar with the SX-70, it folded flat and that is what the image of the girl in the photograph on the right hand page is sitting on top of.

I added a few pieces of washi tape and some ink stamping and the page is ready for the journaling. This spread will be the introduction. The who, what, where, why and when to give the journal context. I plan to use an old fashioned calligraphy pen and have been practicing how to write with it.

If you are interested in the story of how I am putting together this collage journal, the other blog posts were published on Day 2, Day 56, and Day 57.

Thank you for looking and see you again soon.
