Hi, I'm finally posting the pages I have done so far...  This is the page I did for Louise's journal Nature Study. I did this back in November when everything around here was very green!
This the page I did for Karen's journal, I felt like doing something pretty so I chose an angel.
And lastly this is the page i did in my Icon journal. It is an ode to Gustav Klimt who is definitly an art icon.
I have been enjoying this swap greatly, and Thankyou Karen for the lovely Valentine card it was gorgeous, Helen

My Contribution to Louise's Journal

 Louise asked that we share a little about ourselves (great idea and I am going to add that to my journal too!). There was only one page available to I followed Louise's lead and created a small booklet (cover first image).

I decided that I wanted to create something that actually flowed onto another set of pages. I began by tearing one page so the under page was visible then using two different stencils and a stamp pad created the background. After writing a long list of words, I decided on "grow" and "flow" to further connect the pages. Paper, tape, rubberstamps, stickers, a rub-on and writing complete what I've done. It's hard to stop but Palma, the journal swap organizer at Milliande, suggested that we don't need to finish. Tomorrow I'll mail the journal to Louise. I hope she will be pleased. My journal is on its way. Can't wait to revisit it! This is more fun than I imagined.
