Pink - wow I love the layered pages.

Heres mine which I did last week but never posted - nothing about my house like I said it would be, I've been making too many Christmas cards for that.

And just another random experimental page

Im happy to work off the list again for next week - but I've not picked my words yet.

I cant believe nobody used adding machine sums at school! I just checked with my husband and he did them too and he went to a different school but in the same area - wierd!

As for my mystery page - its that man template again - four of them around the page - actually if you follow the outline they overlap and are not kissing but it also kind of looks like they are - its kindof like that profile/vase optical illusion if you know the one I mean?

Phizzy - nice page and a good record of what happened. And I LOVE the clockwork dragonfly - you are very inventive.

Smuckers - I ADORE your page - its so cute and colourful - and wonderfuly stylised.

Danni - what a creative camping trip!! Great pages

I forgot it was Friday - and I did my page LAST Friday when I chose my words so no excuse for not posting sooner

My themes which I chose randomly were apples and automaton and I thought I would try some single colour pages. I'm hoping someone other than me used to have to do this at school cos if not you will all be VERY bemused but its what came into my mind! - its an adding machine. We used to get given them and fill in the blanks either the starting number of objects, the function of the machine or the finishing number of objects.

I also did these at the same time.

And I will leave it up to you to work out what this one is

So I finally made it - heres my connections page - its a bit wierd and abstract, not hugely artistic,  but I enjoyed making it. I used a lot of recycled stuff, envelope, magazines, brown paper envelope, postcards for pictures and cut up to make the mini-cards inside the envelope.

This is the mini postcards inside the envelope. The white one is from a recycled card and the others ar from magazines. The small writing says "What could better explain the relationship betwen nature, human life and the planet, then pressing a seed into the ground and a shoot emerging - crying out to be looked after - and then giving up a tasty, fresh vegetable."

This is a kindof personal post again but hey never mind, I will try and make a funy and meaningless page soon!
It kindof shows how things work their way into your journalling and I thought is was interesting after what we have been saying about emotions etc  - this page started off as playing around with the face template, and ended up like this.

Panthermoon - the group sounds amazing, I wish there was one here.

Phizzy - probably staying here or going to my parents. Nice to have another break thought and its out second wedding anniversary tuesday (not tomorrow) which is why my sweet husband booked the week off

Danni - Great pages - I LOVE the big doodle on the first one, I think thats a great idea!

This is a page I started last week, kindof on the personal theme and kindof just playing around. It wasnt supposed to be finished but I might leave it like this! Or I might try some doodled flowers or butterflies in a black pen. Just in case you cant tell its me two years ago getting my degree! (O:

Aw ~I thought I was going to be first to post!! Oh well

Phizzy I love the string and tags - you have so many good ideas. A personal page for this week sounds good - I already printed off some photos YESTERDAY to do one!!

Sunflower - you got your wish, theres some photos of me coming up but so small you probably cant see them!!

Before I post my page - heres something to make you all jealous - look at this paper my sister got me yesterday!!!!

And heres my page - its very simple and im not sure if it totaly fits the brief. I've had the post card for a long time, and the photo is one I took of somewhere incredibly special to me, my husband called it my spiritual retreat and its a page i definitely need today.

(Last night when he was out, the cooker started sparking by itself as if to light the gas ring, when i touched it to try and turn it off it shocked me so I turned it off at the wall. So now I gotta ring our landlord and see what he says - when we told him the lights in the kitchen we only working sometimes, we think a loose connection - he just told us to wiggle them each time till they come on!!! We had to defrost the fridge because it is dripping water on all our food. Then i left the freezer door open over night by mistake and couldnt open the drawers so we had to defrost that today too. And there was settlement talks this morning for insurance money to do with my husbands familty dying EIGHT years ago and yet again nothing got sorted so we have to dig it all up again come October. What else could happen today!!!!)

And another page I finished yesterday after having the background for ages and not knowing what to do with it.

Phizzy - I love the page and the metal stuff looks great.
I took a photo of my book a few weeks ago and its about half full!!! Althought I have been two sticking pages together to make them thicker.

Graverobber girl - thats a great notebook , I love how the cupboards open.

It is quiet here isnt it.
Heres what I've been working on but Im reluctant to share it - last time I tried using watercolour pencils I got a soggy messy page - this time I am pleased with my technique, I did the drawing and then using a damp sponge either just dabbing it on for the face, or dragging it in the direction of the hair on the picture. So I love the technique but the face on the drawing just isn't quite right - I can see all the little things that are wrong with it but can't really change them now - I might scrap it!
