2009 Calendar: April 13th - 19th

April 13th - 16th. No prompt here -- just my delight in confirming My Lovely Mother and I are going to England. And a nod to Susan Boyle, the Scottish songbird who shocked everyone out of their complacent, sneering stereotypes on the British version of Idol. April 17th-19th (background): prompt here was 'what kind of tree are you and why?' I am an aspen. I think if you click on the picture, it will enlarge enough for you to read the journaling spot that says why. I wanted to post this before writing all over it, so the aspen background would still be really visible. I used some photos copied on a toner copier, then a Copic blender pen, to transfer these images. The handcarved swallow stamp on the bottom and the woman image on the top left I clear-embossed, then chalked over (thanks, Carla!)
