Catching Up

I'm pleased to say that I am almost up-to-date with all my creative projects.  Although sadly, I have not even started the Shimelle 'Something from Almost Nothing'.

Over the weekend I finished my entry for my own mixed media Circle Journal on UKS and posted it on time.

My CJ is called Once Upon A Time and each entry will be based on books I remember from my childhood.

My first entry is based on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Today I completed four of the six challenges on Scrapbooking from the Inside Out.  The theme this month has been Nostalgia. 

The journaling is behind the photos and is about the choices you make.  When I'd written it, I was reminded of the film 'Sliding Doors' which looks at what happens to one woman based on the decisions she makes.  I think it makes an excellent title for this layout.   If I'd thought of the title before I stuck the layout down I would have made the doors slide instead of open like a hinged door.

I also did this one of me when I was very little and in the little envelope is a letter written from me to myself as a child.  The challenge was to: Create a LO where you 'speak' to your 'little girl'. What would she need to hear to make her life easier? What do you want them to know?

I made this with some of the kit I bought from Morag and Nicki and I used one of Morag's layouts as inspiration.  Thank you girls.

I've also started making an altered book.   I bought a hardback book from one of the local charity shops:
This is it before I started altering it.

Then I tore out the photographs, quite a few of the pages and then stuck the remaining pages together in clumps.   I've started painting over the pages with gesso or acrylic paint.

This book will take some time as I have to wait while pages dry - which isn't actually very long - but I go off and do something else and forget to come back to it!!
