Remains of the Day Journal

Altered Dictionary "Life's Blessings"


Finished Altered Book

Here are pictures of my most recent altered book. I had a lot of fun creating the pages. This one was made it to sell on Etsy or give as a gift this Christmas.  I used a college text book, and then cut pages out and glued pages together. I used some of the pages as part of the book. Then I used scrapbook paper, paint, stamps, envelopes and magazine images. It has room for someone to add their own journaling or pictures and to embellish pages. 

100 Follower Drawing Winner!!!!!

Carol Fosdick, is the winner of my 100 follower drawing!!! I messaged her on facebook as I could not figure out how to send a message through the blog system, go figure ... lol.

I hope it is the right Carol Fosdick. I found her Pinterest page and she looks like she would be a follow of mine :)

Here are the pictures of the altered book I made as a journal to be embellished by the owner of it. I simply used scrapbook paper and some wasbi tape in spots. Included a few stationary envelopes for secrets to be kept. I really love the way it turned out, hope Carol does too!


Where have I been

A little bit of everywhere ...
Kayaking, hiking, Ireland, Paris, North Carolina, and kayaking some more. And we will head to North Dakota sometime soon. Then we get busy and ready to move to Maine. Dreams do come true and I will keep everyone up to date as things unfold. I'll have time and the desire to create art in the midst of it all. And I will post pics. A drawing of my followers will happen today and the winner will get an altered book art journal I am finishing in the next day or so.
