Learning Something.....


Yesterdays lesson - Nothing makes me smile like the sight of the delivery van driver pulling up outside.  Nothing makes me frown quite like opening the door to the Royal Mail "you were out" card.  Not sure if it's strictly a lesson on this page, but I'm planning to write a note about the day's lesson to pop inside the envelope.  Maybe today will sound more like a lesson... think I still have my art journal head on!  Onwards and upwards!

From making a very simple book I've ended up making very inky, messy collage style pages for my LSNED book.  Last night I sat and started to created pages ready to go up to the 4th September, aided this morning by some new 7Gypsies stamps and my trusty Tim Holtz tissue tape.




Right, I'm off to wash my inky fingers now!  Thanks for stopping by.

These are just FAB pages Vicki - almost a shame to journal on them, but once you have a month's worth it will be a great little book, full of beautiful touchy feely pages and profound (? or at least smile inducing) thoughts. Love it!

Oh and I'm with you on September 1st's thoughts!
