ANOTHER MESSAGE ART JOURNAL – This one is illustrated recipes from Venice, Italy.  I created this art journal as a birthday gift for someone special who visited Venice & loved the food.  I found these recipes in my Venice source file, which had an article from a cooking magazine that featured Venice food.  

Note:  I have a 4-drawer file cabinet with magazine articles & photos filed by subject.  I have collected and filed magazine photos for 30 years and have a pretty good source of inspiration to use for my artwork that is quickly and easily accessible.  I probably have 75 files of just photos of different birds and maybe 100 files for flowers.  Magazines have such gorgeous photos and are a wonderful resource for artists.
