Final Journal Backgrounds, This Volume

These are the last four backgrounds of my current written journal. Wow, this one has only taken me 3 months and a few days to finish. Kinda surprised me, because I've been in/on somewhat of a quiet, inward, laid-low place/path during this journal period! Sources: "Ladies" from a free paper sheet in a Stampington publication. Egyptian Treasure business card came from My Beloved Aunt Judy's frog gift wrapping. Papers, sticker, statue image, from my stash. Leaf is polymer clay experiment leftover; red apple button. "The Invitation' is for me to freelance where I'm headed, what I'm feeling going into it. 'Hot Tempered, don't be afraid' is a message to my inner self! Sources: My papers and stickers. Tuscan Rose woman image. Palm Trees/Pond from a postcard, my collection. Rose stamp image from Veronica. 'I always dreamed that' sticker is to kick-start my ideas for the next few months that will be captured in the new journal.
Sources: Mary Mata flower image. Roses/music strip from Veronica. My stamps (large woman image is Leo Cioci, probably my all time favorite stamp designer), my papers and stickers. Desire having to do with what I want to see happen as I begin a new journal volume. Sources: Images, Mary Mata. My stash of papers, small coffee filter pocket. 'Cry', and a dancing woman image, because a journal is ending -- that's always both difficult and exciting! The Arabic paper fills me with joy -- such lovely lovely lettering.

And yes! I already have my new volume; will scan soon, but not until I've found my quote and poem to go along with it.

These pages are great, I'd also like to see them after you write in them...if it's not too personal! I especially love the last page! Roxanne
