I recently organized an internal product launch party for our corporate office. The theme was "Feelin' Groovy" which meant I listened to a lot of 60s music to get inspired. After listening to California Dreamin' it dawned on me that my Skinny Book partner, Caryl, had a theme of "Dreaming". So... I spread gesso with a credit card and then when dry, sponged blue and sepia dye ink. I then used a straw and blew around some iridescent brown calligraphy ink, collaged pieces of a California map and a vintage postcard and stamped the lyrics. It was fun to interpret her theme as things were happening in my life -- much the same as journaling!
