Oh, and shortly after last week's post the gov't decided to put out a budget (at least through January) and re-open. So, possibly have to go through all this again.
Anyway...here's a look at my "old" desk which is supposed to be my Cuttlebug/Cricut/Sizzix/etc desk but piled with other stuff at the moment.
My art journal page from last week that I put to the side. I added some border with stamps and Stickles to the umbrella. A London Eyewitness Travel Guide. I love these guides. Lots and lots of info and color pictures and maps. It's great! A white wooden collage frame with 4X6 (6) slots for pics or whatever. Felt for some card ideas. And a travel brochure from a company I signed up with to go on a trip next year. And where will my travels take me?? I'm super excited ---- The Galapagos!!!! In July. I can't wait.
Here's a close up of the journal. the Stickles was added to the red dots on the umbrella. And thanks for all the compliments. I definitely am my own worst critic. :-) LOL.
One last thing to share -- i had bought Suzi Blu's Mixed Media Girls book 'cause the folksy "dolls" look sooo cute and I want to make my own for cards and journals. Here's my first go at it one evening...
I'm not sure if my paper has lines too far apart but if I went with the spacing in the book this doll would be HUGE! So, will have to change it. A quick practice though. Need to keep at it.
I hope those in Australia are doing well with all those nasty fires blazing away. The pictures over Sydney Harbor look horrible. I remember living in Southern California and there were some nasty fires!
