Dream In Color

An AJ page with the dictionary definition of DREAM.  While looking at the vibrant colors in this piece, I thought of  "Dream in Color".  I stamped that sentiment on the left side of the page.  In this piece, I used lots of fun things.  The flowers are made of paper towels I use when painting, so they have lots of random color on the towels.  On the corrugated cardboard piece, I glued dried pieces from my Golden paints  (you know the ones that dry inside the lids).  Lots more book pages, layers and layers of paint and more stamping.  When I looked at the piece this morning (no picture of the before) I just didn't like it.  The colors were too dull and too much the same.  So I just started adding more color and loved the final product.  As they say, let it sit awhile and come back with fresh eyes.  Then go for it!

First Class

AJ page in my altered book. I love the saying "It doesn't count if... it's the last one." Notice the cake? I used several girls that Hope had cut for me. I love the First Class stamps from an envelope I had because I thought the girls were First Class. Thought the page turned out pretty cool.

Baby Bird

While at the beach last weekend, we found this baby bird.  I think he'd fallen from his nest.  I'm not sure but think it may be a Blue Jay.
