Prepare to be jealous. I received my journal from Smmarrt yesterday!
On overall shot: from right to left, journal, Altered Images book, Attracting Birds to your Garden, and album cover.
You can see the button closure on the journal - I really like this.
Awesome leaf resist watercolour spatter title page.
Some of my favourite pages:
I love this idea - plastic windows from envelopes
A prompt page: the pictures are sidewalks - I'm to use them as inspiration.
tissue paper leaves - I can't wait to get my hands on some bleeding tissue to try this myself!
both Smmarrt and I like kraft paper and birds
this will serve as a really good reminder for me!
One of the extras - a thrifted book on attracting birds to your backyard. Smmarrt couldn't have known, but I have a growing collection of vintage and antique books on birds. I absolutely LOVE the illustrations in this one, I can't wait to start scanning them to use in my journal (NOT going to cut this one up)
Love the texture on this page: blue paint sprayed over mesh fabric. Gorgeous.
If you remember Smmarrt had a mishap with the first cover, but she sent it anyway for me to use. My other love is gardening - I just wish this was what I look like when I'm in the garden. lol. I'm torn though, whether to use it for a cover for a garden journal/log (on my to do list) or to use it for an altered art project.
I didn't take pictures of the other extras (Smmarrt totally spoiled me): Ghiardelli chocolate (yummmmmmmmm) a Copic multiliner, and a set of inspiration cards
. I'm really looking forward to using everything!
So spoiled. And very very happy.
Thanks again Smmarrt!
