A Page for Carol

As most of you know Im in an online Journal Round Robin.
The current one I have is for Carol Sweeney. She has chosen Inspriational Quotes for her theme and this is the page I created for her.
Since the quote I picked has wings I thought this image was most appropriate.
This is the back of the page where I created a tag that will fit over where the book will be bound.
Since the front quote mentioned wings, I thought I would carry the wing theme on to the back with butterflies and a bird.
Close up of the tag.
I couldn't resist adding another Inspirational quote on the back too.
Hope she likes it.

Journal Page for Gloria

As most of you know by now I'm involved with a Journal Round Robin Swap on Kindred Souls.
The book I've been working on this week is for none other than Gloria Alexander.
The theme she chose was Vintage Shabby Chic. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did making it.

 Here is a close up of the tag I covered using a napkin collage technique. You basically decoupage the napkin to the piece and then I used iridescent watercolor to hand paint in all the details.
 I just love doing this for it transforms your piece to look like actual canvas.
The cut out pieces are by K and Company.

This is a close up of the small embellishment I made from a small envelope and tag cut from some patterned paper.
This is the back of the page. I love the vintage feel of this print and thought it went perfectly with the theme.
