I'm going to miss you. I really look forward to your posts.

I'm most intrigued by those journals. I don't journal, don't even enjoy journaling, but I can't figure out how you add thoughts and such to these lovely pages when they are already filled with all that yummy collage work, especially on the pages shown in the second photo. I'll be curious to see how you handle these pages. My thinking is, I wouldn't want to cover the collages you have so carefully created. And, speaking of the second photo, is that fabric on the left side that you have printed on? Gorgeous Snellen image.

Steph said...

Hi E, yes it is fabric...tea dyed fabric. the Snellen is a rubber stamp I think by Tim Holtz. I either write, or type my thoughts and cut them out or I cut text from old books to create another "layer"... :)) Or a add a layer which consists of writing labels....
