"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Two more backgrounds






Here are two more collaged journal pages.  I have noticed that in my journals that are mostly painted I do spreads.  I don't know why I do not do that in this one.  Each page stands on its own though they might have similar elements to tie them together. 

I did a little spray-painting on these pages.  And yes, there is more yummy tape!!  I just love that stuff.

Flirt and I are both on the mend.  Thanks for all your well wishes and prayers.

You use such yummy colors! I love that red page so much.

It's just been too windy for me to do any spray painting and I'm itching to get out there and paint some backgrounds.

You have taken spray painting to a high art form, that is so cool and the color combo is great.

okay now where is the tape on your journal pages that you keep talking about and where do you get it?

These are fabulous Mary! Glad you and Flirt are both feeling better.

Lee Ann the whole main background on the first journal page is tape!! As is the side script border and the little black and white houndstooth pattern. On the second page the little black and white dots as well as the orange pattern below it is tape!!!

Yep, it's yummy stuff!! :)

Love these background spread, Mary ! The hand one really does it for me - the splash of turquoise and orange are a great touch.
Glad you and Flirt are recovering well from all that trauma !
Big Love to you !
