Yesterday I went for a walk with Emily, my friend's little four footed friend. We went through the woods, but it was all a bit spooky, as it was a dark and rainy day, and rather gloomy under the trees. Emily kept giving me unmistable signs that she wanted to go back home. Like slamming her brakes on, or trying to pull me in the opposite direction....And then I saw a TREE that was watching me. Yep, a tree! If you are now thinking that I am slightly/rather/completely mad - you could be right, but I did see it. I did! And here it is:
Anyway, I decided Emily was right and we should go back home!
On the way back I found some pretty, wild roses growing next to a heap of thrown away tyres next to a rather murky bridge under the motorway , and it always makes me wonder how beauty turns up at such unlikely places,
And I managed to finish one of the mini-books. I can only show you a sneak peek today, as it has to travel to its destination still - in the nice mail art envelope from yesterday.
And I made some bookmarks, there's a bookmark swap going on at Gingersnaps,with the theme *travel*. I think I will make some more though, as they are not quite as I envisaged.
The Paris ones have been stamped on the front, and for the back I used some Paris themed scrapbook paper, but there was no manufacturer's name on it. No embellishments this time as they might damage the books! And I have cut off the short ribbon-tail on the right one, didn't like it. But it was the last piece of red ribbon!
The London ones have also been stamped on one side and for the reverse I have used an old illustration of London life.
I will make some more with more exciting themes and then decide which ones to enter for the swap.
Okay, that was it for today, time for my next cup of coffee! Havea great day, take care and thanks for visiting!
