I tend to take a bit of a break, a few days off from working my journal and then when I start again, I end up doing multiple pages in a row. Recently, I ordered a beautiful necklace from my friend Sharon Borsavage and when she sent it off to me she included a gift of some yummy collage papers. I could not wait to use them! You'll see them in my journal below.
Everything except the tea bag tag (be yourself) and the round bird stamp (ARTchix Studio) was a gift from Sharon. The painted circles on the card (reproduced) gave me the idea to add the real bits of blue and white paint to the journal. I love that! And the small fish print she sent had me thinking of my new Fred B. Mullett stamps.
Just for fun, I've made a very short video that shows more of the progression of these pages. You can watch it below or on YouTube.
