I actually remembered I had company coming today, so I will be gone the entire day, cooking on the grill and in my chiminea. It'll be a hot time, especially now that the temps have cooled to a decent level of the high 70s F (mid 20s C). I love to grill, and I hope to remember to take a few photos, too. But for now, let's return to "Dreams are seldom black and white."
the page on the right is the first one in the second set of signatures. I know it's hard to believe, but I actually stamped the lily on the right.
This is what you see when you first open to these pages.
Flip back the envelope, and you get a place to hide some thoughts.
Flip back the postcard, and you see this. All these things came from my stash, although I occasionally am gifted with bits and pieces of decorated/scrapbook paper which I use as soon as I receive it.
This is the last page in the second set of signatures.
These pages are made using anything I find paper wise. I seem to have accumulated a ton of images, books, magazines, and old postcards I can draw from to add to these pages. If I color a page, I do so with dye, distress, or solvent ink, not paint. I once ruined a Zig marker on a page in my calendar because I tried to write over paint, so I don't ever want anyone to suffer the same fate.
Only the covers are fabric. The pages are all sewn paper on paper only. I do this because it's hard to write on fabric.
Thank you for looking and commenting on these journal pages. Your comments mean the world to me.
Finally, I want to remind you to dig up your Second on the 2nd, a post that can be about anything you want to share with others so they/we can have a second (or possibly first) look, too.
