Good morning you all. I don't know what time of day it will be when you read this, but it's morning here now. And if I'm not mistaken, it's feeling a bit warmer today. I don't want to say it too loudly in case I scare it off! Would be nice not to freeze today.
Yesterday I spent nearly the whole day playing with my journal. The paper in my daily scribble journal is not very good quality, and when I use wet paints or too much gesso, it goes through the paper. I was wise enough to leave 2 pages free before painting the pages from yesterday, and so I have *repaired* these pages to make them usable. I stuck an old ledger page over each spotty *backside*, and then took it from there. I had a pile of nice hand-made paper, which I tore into trips and added along with some torn book pages, some sacking, lace, TH tissue strips etc until the pages were covered. Then I added some photos, of 2 great aunts of my husband(taken about 1900) on the left side, and one of Erika and her brother, taken about 1920 on the right. I decided to leave the rest as it is, as I liked the collage without covering it up with too many photos.
And I made a tag, which was supposed to be autumn and lace, using the dress form from TH, leaves and lace. I got a bit carried away, and now you can hardly see the dress form or tag....Oh well, somethings do go wrong....And it does look like autumn, just not like anything else!
So, here's wishing you all a good day, and I'm sending huge hugs and sparkly vibes galore to Donna, who had a knee operation yesterday. Get well soon Donna, miss you! Take care you all, and thanks for visiting!
PS I just read on Donna's Blog, that she has been up all night taking pics of the people who go past her door and blogging them, Good for you, Donna!
