Our Lucky Smashbook Winner Is…

A battered old book takes on a new life as a Smashbook.

Last month my artist friend Kerry introduced me to the joys of Smashbooks or Junk Journals. Hand-crafted from scrap paper and off-cast books, these journals are functional works of art.

I was so enthralled with mine that I decided to share the love. I picked one from Kerry’s stash to give away in Spilling Ink’s second contest for 2014.

Holding these events makes me feel like a Christmas elf. I have fun wrapping up packages, posting them off, and thinking of the happiness a parcel in the post brings.

Please note the spotty pink and black ribbon matches my blog’s Adelle Theme. *Wink, wink* That’s my little attempt at personal branding.

And the winner is…

Yvonne Mes!

Congrats Yvonne—I hope you enjoy your journal. I’m thrilled to say this prize is going to a good home, where it will undoubtedly be put to use. Yvonne is a picture book writer and illustrator. You can check out her work here.

 

Here’s a photo of the lovely lady enjoying her handmade journal. Thanks to Yvonne for sending me photos.
