It really sucks not having a camera.
So, I finally decided to just scan each page, which works, but most of the pages are fuzzy. Better then nothing.
So, here they are! There are 44 pictures so I have decided to make this a two part post. Here are the pictures from the cover to August 16th.
The beads say August, and just some other fun beads. There are other fun random bits sticking up from the edge.
I made a calendar of inchies. The hearts are paper clip hearts made by Emma.
This was the first day that I taught an altered journal class. The fish print and the face on the left side are from one of the ladies in my class.
Clearance tags from some markers that I had bought.
Art is Everywhere- this was a spread that I had made in one of my larger journals. These were bits of leftovers.
This was a great day- we had finally gotten some rain.
Working on a sewing project, so I glued some bits of the fabric to this spread.
The sewing project didn't work out exactly how I wanted, so I made some different plans.
Emma made me some fun finger print art.
We headed down to Iowa City so the hubby could ride one of the mountain bike trails. He wasn't sure the best route to take, so I used some tracing paper over his make to plan our a route for him while he drove. I thought the image looked cool, so I added it to my journal.
My second Altered Journal Class. I was showing them that anything can be used as a stamp. The blue "dots" were made using the foam shelf liners glued to a piece of wood.
The farm that I work at a few days a week had been vandalized. Someone tried to set fire to the barn that housed the chickens. Crafting is my therapy.
I didn't remember my journal until I was already snuggled into bed. I was too lazy to get up and make an entry.
The tiny little picture is a reproduction of a watercolor I did of Emma.
"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will." Mahatma Gandhi
A reproduction of the paper person I made for the woman I work for.
Emma likes the dress design game on Barbie.com. I like the dresses she makes. So, I plopped one into my journal and drew a person into the dress.
A bunch of randomness.
Packaging from some stationary inspire me to make a house scene with some trees in front.
This page was made while I was in a hotel in Minneapolis, MN. The cloud picture is from a trip to the park and the picture of me and Emma taken on the 13th.
The paper person is a reproduction of a wood block I made. She is saying, "Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you are right." All the photos are framed with electrical tape.
I hope that you have a fun and creative day!
