I feel like I've had quite a productive day, artwise anyway. One of my current passions is for creating journals, chunky books and tag books - with the bigger space to work on, there's more room to play around and add more stuff (I'm a big fan of lots of embellishments and fibres!). Anyway, I'm participating in a Journal of Dreams round robin - there are 16 of us, scattered around the globe ..... USA, Canada, Australia .... and just me here in the UK. We have to have them ready to go postal on 11th September, most of the artists have already posted pics of what they've done in their journals (we each have to make front and back covers, an intro and then our own "dream" page) and there're some beautiful pages. I've been panicking for a few weeks really, I just couldn't decide what I wanted to do for my journal and could see the time slipping by too fast!
Well, I finally got inspired after discovering a pair of earrings I've had tucked away at the bottom of my jewellery box - they're miniature dreamcatchers and I've never worn them because they were just too long for my "short" neck (!). So today I've been busy making a start on my front cover - I've had great fun with decorative papers, stamps, images and Twinkling H2O's. I've cut a hole in the journal where the dreamcatcher will sit and I've been embossing letters with UTEE as well. Still got a fair bit of work to do and I've not started my own "dream" page yet, but I promise I'll post some pics when the cover is finished.
