BIRD Journal

I took a class with LK Ludwig this year and this is what we worked on. Mounted it on chipboard, handcolored the bird and added the checks, word and all the rest. Pretty fun and pretty too!

This is the back cover.

Pause Journal - back cover


I put together this new journal - 4"x9" and this is the cover. Not too happy with the writing although I like everything else. May paint over and redo. The background is textured and I think that may have been part of the problem. What do you think?

Mini Banner swap

Here's my 7 mini banners (3"x5") for inthishouseandgarden.
Two of the three were coated with texture crackle
and the other distress crackle. These two are coated with rock candy stickles.
and these two are crumbled tissue paper.
The snowmen and the banner are made from watercolor paper.
This was a fun swap!

Anachronism Mail Art Envelope Swap

From wikipedia: An anachronism—from the Greek ανά (ana: against, anti-) and χρόνος (chronos: time)—is an error in chronology, especially a chronological misplacing of persons, events, objects, or customs in regard to each other. The item is often an object, but may be a verbal expression, a technology, a philosophical idea, a musical style, a material, a custom, or anything else so closely associated with a particular period in time that it would be incorrect to place it outside its proper domain.

This is the spread I have been working on with Nancy Baumiller. I added the saying "she no longer misses u like candy", the red ribbon, the lovely girl with the fabulous outfit and pink hair, and the bird in the circle from the original post. How do you think I did?

Newest Swaps on Their Way!

Unfortunately, the spread is so big I couldn't get it in one shot in my scanner. The first is with flap, 2nd is without flap and the bottom is the right side. I still have to add the center - something... stay tuned.

Back cover for my journal

Teesha Moore wannabe

Saw a link for Teesha Moore's website to make a journal, and I had to go look. She takes a sheet of watercolor paper 22x30 and turns it into a fabulous little journal. Michael sells a very nice paper - I think it was $3.50 - so here is my result. This is the cover. She also has videos on how to do her style of journal, painting, borders, etc. I used a sharpie (which I don't normally do) and I'm not crazy about the thickness. Will go back to my gel pen. Live and learn - right?
