To Toni: Chinese Scroll

To Toni. Cut from the label Julie wrote on my Red Lovely envelope. The blue/black/gray paper on the right was a surprise sheet she included for me (one of two). It flips open to reveal: a postcard from my collection, hooked via turquoise brads to an ink-stained library pocket. Tucked in the library pocket is some of my own hand-painted paper for more journaling. The inside back of Julie's piece is lined with a huge piece of joss paper, gray, with a foiled silver center. Lots and lots of secret journaling spots! Rub on splat in upper left corner. The pink background is fabric paint. Chinese Scroll (with floral decorative tape strip). Well, actually, it was a big juicy doodle on the envelope Julie mailed The Red Lovely to me in. I decided it spoke Chinese. It folds down for journaling behind. The tie-dyed looking piece to the right also opens for journaling. Nooks and crannies, I gotta have 'em. The Chinese characters came from an Asian market newspaper - I always grab one whenever I visit that store. Magazine pagoda image. Rub-on splat in the right corner. Turquoise fabric paint background. Very happy with this page - true story.

Nice! Love how everything is coming together here....very resourceful as always. Must go to Mitsua marketplace...and...sheesh...must get myself a journal! I think that is what's the matter with me. Must journal immediately. Happy weekend!
