Art Tuesday: Scrapbook Love

Hi everyone. I've taken a quick break from puppy-minding and snuck into the Wifi zone of my house (yes, really. Only part of my house has Wifi. Thick wall problems ... ) Tig (the puppy) is v. adorable:

 (but she does enjoy biting people).

Cute but painful.

Anyway. Time for Art Tuesday - we've not had one of these in a while, have we? Last summer I started a scrapbook - I posted about it for the first time here, though I don't know if many of you saw it (no one commented - which I am still not over) - and today I'm posting a few more pictures from it.

Clockwise from top left: card from my friend Chloe; birthday card from friend Leonie; "end-of-term certificate" made by my friend Catriona (basically my friends and I occasionally behave very weirdly on a Friday lunchtime and do a sort of strange club called Civilised Friday with lots of rules and gestures and if you saw us you'd think we were very strange indeed); birthday card from friend Agnes.

Clockwise from top left: Olly Murs ticket and confetti; picture from magazine; birthday card from my mum.
My Olly Murs ticket from last April <3
And some bits of the confetti that fell from the ceiling during the last song!

Clockwise from top left: birthday card from my friend Catriona; momentoes from my trip to Madrid; picture cut from magazine; further momentoes from Madrid trip.

Remember, I posted about my trip to Madrid last May? Here are the ticket stubs from the aeroplane there and back, and a ticket from a tour of a bull ring we did.

Clockwise from top left: birthday card from my friend Chloe; drawing done for me by Catriona; birthday card from my friend Niamh.
^Accurate summary of my life.
Drawing done by Catriona. I am, in the words of a friend of mine, "not vertically excellent", and my friends like to constantly remind us all of this fact. They have nicknamed me 'The Small' and like to make remarks such as "where's Emily? I can't see her, she's so small!" Anyway, this is a drawing Catriona did for me during Spanish once. Thanks, Cat -_-

Clockwise from top left: little good-luck-with-exams card from my Latin teacher (ie the sweetest woman ever); cut out from a Christmas card from my friend Joanna; birthday card from my sister; cut out from my first ever bottle of proper perfume.
My friend Joanna is Tolkien-mad. She has learnt Dwarvish and is learning Elvish.
"Depp down I really am this superficial!" I love this picture :')

Clockwise from top left: medallion I wore for a charity presentation; lil paper dress; cut out from magazine; dried flowers; cut out from newspaper; cut out from magazine; patterned papers; cut out from magazine.
The medallion from the charity presentation, with the neck string cunningly cut and tied into a bow. The Twisty Headed Man Company is a Glasgow-based arts charity that my friends and I made a presentation about for a competition last year. We got to the final but didn't manage to win the £3000; however, it's still an important memory for me.
Gorgeous, yes? Yes.
Drawing done by Judith Kerr (author of The Tiger Who Came to Tea, the Mog books and When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit) when she was an art student. I love this.
Hope you enjoyed this post. Do you have a scrapbook? What do you put in it? Would you like to see more of mine?

  2. This is a lovely post idea! I too have a scrapbook, but it's nowhere near as nice as yours. I tend to tape stuff down all over the place scrawl notes around the items. I just love the idea of being able to look at all that stuff ten or twenty years from now:)

    1. Thanks! Haha well I spend a lot of time obsessing over the layout :L I also love the idea of looking back, especially to read old birthday cards and things like that <3
