October 8, 2011

morning. this is what i woke up to…

first snow colorado

first snow

it’s our first snow. i think my day will be filled with soup, cookies, tea, snuggles and good friends. a perfect fall day, even if it is a little early for snow.

here is my journal page for today. i love the pretty colors and stitched flowers.

materials used: adirondack color wash spray inks, found papers, stitching, washi tape, wax paper, gesso.

day 11

and i just wanted to share some beautiful treasures i found on ebay this last week. i am giddy with excitement to use these in my altered books. don’t worry, i am not going to use the actual papers. they are too gorgeous to do that. i will be scanning them and printing them out. i seriously can’t wait. notice the dates on some of the pages. so absolutely amazing. you can tell that it was written with ink and some sort of quill. so beautiful!!!
