August Giveaway by Dayna Collins
The August Giveaway is a Paper Remnant Journal created and donated by Dayna Collins of Alley Art Studio. Dayna created this journal using found papers and ephemera. You can read more about the creation of these journals by clicking here. The journals hold a whopping 50 pages and are designed so you can write on the pages, glue in photographs, add more pages, or insert your own ephemera into the pockets and envelopes.This is the journal being given away:
In case you would like a better idea of how this journal can be used, here are a few photos of what I did with mine during a three-week stay at the Portland Waterfront (that's the front of my completed journal at the top of this post).
Dayna is a lover of bright, vibrant colors, especially orange, red, and turquoise. She loves texture, whimsy, and making a mess. She is a self-taught artist who delights in taking art classes throughout the Northwest. She is willing to try almost anything, but her favorite mediums are mixed media and assemblage and her favorite tool is using her hands. Dayna facilitates expressive arts workshops in Salem and Portland and for the past few years has successfully guided women through 12-week creative recovery sessions using The Artist’s Way. When not making art, she is a certified drug and alcohol counselor and presents workshops on wellness and communication.

The lucky winner will be chosen around September 1st. Please be sure and leave your contact information with your comment so we can get in touch with you. Good luck!
