Second are the pages I made for Amy's Traveling Journal. Her theme was things with wings. I made a torn paper background from old book pages and sprayed it with walnut ink, then wiped it off and when dry sanded it to make it old looking. Then I collaged a lot of different elements onto the pages to illustrate the theme. A lot of the pictures came from a couple of children's books I got at a garage sale for practically nothing because the covers and some pages are missing and others are torn. I rescued them the trash and have enjoyed using the illustrations in artwork. I really like how these pages turned out.

Pat's Little Journal's theme was to use a Photo. I made a page using one of my favorite pictures of my folks. It was taken just a couple of months before Mom passed away - and Dad had just smooched her in public and made her blush. After 62 years of marriage I think that is just about the sweetest thing ever.

Next we have two of the little houses I made for Cathy's Door Swap. The screen doors open and there is a retro (50s) scene inside with the women saying clever (albeit possibly rude) things. I didn't scan the doors open as I didn't want the ladies who were to receive them to know what was coming. But the swap is over now so I can tell. In the first one the mother says, " That's right, Sweetheart, goals and dreams are Satan's way of distracting you from making dinner."

I hope you enjoy seeing some of the things I have been doing.
