Heart Journal Progress
So, not much progress here. Although I have been working on my little journal. I am a bit frustrated at the moment and thought I would just share what I have going so far and maybe I can get on with it.
Here is the bookmark tag with my list of things. I'm not sure if I will do anything else to the pocket page.
I originally intended this to be a simple, quick altered book about things that I like/love. I was just going to alter each page with pocket, tags, layers and make a simple statement that "I heart ........whatever"
A collection of little heart boxes was going to be used in some way through out. May still do that.
Then the first page that I did (following my impulse) didn't turn out that was at all.
This is the page and it is about walking barefoot on the beach. The big heart with the shell on it is a transparency of one of the heart boxes. The little shells are also transparencies of a shell that I photographed to use for the page. I just made several sizes.
One thing that I am challenged about is that this little book will not hold up to a lot of chunky stuff and so I decided to keep it as "unchunky" as I can by using very lightweight things like transparencies, tissue, watercolor backgrounds etc.
The day I did this pink page....I just needed to do pink. I don't have a clue what else I will do to it. But I decided this book would be a good time to experiment with my new Caran d'Ache NeocolorII set and do more than background. So........
Remember the photograph in an earlier post of this day lily? I know, it's not too good and I still have some diddling to do to it.
And here is another background in progress. I so enjoyed doing the diamonds in my BOD page. Now at this point I have decided that I shall start page backgrounds as the impulse comes and not be stressed about what comes next.
