Journal Cover

I just finished the cover to my journal. I like how it turned out. I like the image of the girl. I think she is just lovely. The flapper girl I found in an old magazine along with the pictures of the magazine Journal covers.

Finally had some time to sit down and do a little art! Here are my newest ATC. My mother in law gave me a bunch of her old Reminisce magazines and they are a treasure trove of old adveritsements and old photos. I hope you like them. They are availabe for trade if anyone is interested.

Squares from envelopes!

I remember reading on another art blog about using the inside of envelopes in your art. Well, I've finally tried it. Here is a before picture. I've taken several envlopes and torn them open. I then glued them on a piece of paper for extra strength and then I used my square cutter to cut out 1" squares. I'll post a picture of the after over the weekend. There are many possible uses for the envelopes. They could also be used as a background for collage or ATC. If you try this out let me know. I'd love to see what you do with your envelopes.
