Altered Journal #2

Began my second altered journal. Here is my title page, made from an advertisement from a scrapbooking magazine. I loved the color and pattern combination. The end papers were a dark blue and I eased them down with a wash of white acrylic paint. The collaged materials are from a paper lunch bag I bought at the dollar store around valentines day.

Images of Autumn

A burst of bright orange radiance peeking through some still green leaves. Autumn beginning to paint our backyard view.

Sweet Baby Girl

Does it look like our baby girl loves her rice cereal? Yep! Life has surely changed with another child in the house - but has definitely been a wonderful change.

Have had a bit of time to work in my studio - sometimes with her in her little chair watching me or drinking a bottle. Finally finished my first altered journal and began a second. It was a freeing process to finish up the one - although I am still trying to get inspiration for completing the cover.

Starting the second journal has been fun too. I have been using some of my clippings from my files and using images that are pleasing to me - trying to keep myself upbeat and awake - sometimes I can get so tired these days!

I hope to photograph some of my journal pages soon and upload them. I just read about creating a book/journal using a magazine. This sounds interesting and something I'd like to try.

I am also back trying to get my studio organized since I mostly just stuffed things into drawers and cubbies as I was setting it up before our trip to Korea. Now I want to really get organized so my limited time working in my studio is productive and creative without feeling unorganized.

Green Tea Treats

A memory from our trip to Seoul, South Korea... Green tea desserts from O'Sulloc Tea House. Everything was delicious and I fell in love with green tea, especially in an ice cream and sweetened dessert format...
