Today I started a "scrapbook/journal" of things I'd like to incorporate (my wishlist) for our new place. As soon as I can I plan on adding before and after photos as to this book as well.

This mixed media collage quickly took on a life of it's own. When I realized about half way through that it was taking on the "dreams" theme I thought it would be perfect as this week's Illustration Friday contribution!

I really like collage journals. They definitely do take on a life of their own. This is just lovely...the bedroom on the right looks like West Elm...they have great stuff! Well, I do hope you put together a wonderful new dream nest!
