In the years past my boyfriend and I had hoped that we would remember when it was that we transplanted the tomatoes into the greenhouse… turns out we never did. We then decided to get and use a farm journal.
This farm journal will be an external memory. At the end of the day we will write everything that we did in the farm down. That way in the coming years we will be able to reference it and know when I planted my dragons tongue beans.
I knew that I would never use a journal if it didn’t make me feel good to look at and use, so I decided to collage all over it to remind me of what it is and what its purpose is.
This way every time I look at the journal I will think “Records are smart for my way of life! Oh yeah I should write so and so down.”
The collage was a simple task, with just modpoge and magazine clippings but I wanted to cover it with clear adhesive plastic to make it waterproof and to protect the collage itself. However, alas I cannot find my roll of clear sticky contact paper. Perhaps Ill find it soon fingers crossed
Do you guys keep journals? Have you ever collaged them?
