I got my journal today! It's awesome! Here are the photos. It's been so dark and rainy here the last couple of days so they're not the best, but I think they'll do. They're in order as they appear in my journal.
My journal's theme was nature.
First, these pages are by me.
The poem reads:
maggie and milly and molly and mae
went down to the beach (to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles, and
milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;
and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles; and
mae came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea
by e.e. cummings
Next, these pages are by twisted beader. I LOVE the trees! She did a great job painting them.
The quote at the bottom reads:
Two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one less traveled ~Robert Frost. I love that quote.
These pages are by HarleyQuinn. I love all the poofy flowers. I like 3D elements in paper pages.
The poem is Footprints in the Sand. The 'sand' on the right page is textured. Is it large glitter? Whatever it is it's neat. Thank you!
Finally, these are Sarahj2001's pages.
On the left the quotes are as follows:
The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea" ~isak Dinesen. Love it!
Water has no taste, no color, no odor; it cannot b e defined, art relished while ever mysterious. Not necessary to live, but rater life itself. It fills us with a gratification that exceeds the delights of the senses" ~Antoine De Saint-Exupery
All the water that will ever be is right now" ~National Geographic
"When the well is dry, we know the worth of water" ~Ben Franklin
And on the right page under the blue easter grass water
"A little water is a sea to an ant.
Quotes on left read:
"Night comes to the desert all at once, as if someone turned off the lights"~Joyce Carol Oates
"As a matter of fact, an ordinary desert supports a much greater variety of plants than does either a forest or a prairie"~Ellsworth Huntington
"Come on in. The earth, like the sun, like the air, belongs to everyone - and no one"~Journey Home
And on the left: "What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well"~Antoine De Saint-Exupery
"Sunshine all the time makes a desert"~Arab Proverb
I like that she did nature opposites...desert and water. Thank you!
I love this journal. I can't stop flipping through it and admiring all the work. Thanks to the three of you for working on it
