Written Journal - Prepped Pages

The Paris images are from a Mary Mata collage sheet. The stamped image is called Cosmic Woman (Stamp Francisco) - I just got it and LOVE it. She reminds me of the actress Helena Bonham Carter, actually, who I think is sublime! The dark pink tag with Mind-Body-Soul at the top is attached to another just like it, little tag inserts such as I love -- I made these in a make-your-own-tags experiment. The gold corner piece is an American Express business envelope that came in the mail at work - I loved the image of the hand with the birds, feels like a Venetian setting too! The green paper with the blue bird on it (Basic Grey) slides behind the envelope. The yellow/black plastic parts bag is something I found on an alley walk. The ballerinas are a tag that pulls out. When I say I love tags and surprises in my journal, you can see I'm telling you a true story, huh? This page is actually finished -- it became a collage that visually expresses everything I was feeling that day. The Mermaid Dreams section is a post card I made then could NOT bear to part with when it was finished! I hand-carved the stamp of the trio of small frames (stamped in blue, here).
