KEEP IT SIMPLE LEARNING JOURNAL PAGE: This is a page in my learning journal that I worked on a couple weeks ago. I guess it might be done but you never know! The Bunnie was take from an old child's book I got at a yard sale. I only had to color in pink ears and nose. Flowers were punched out of a colorful magazine add, with old buttons. The stems are bakers cord that I got at Michael's. At the bottom of the stems is a tag with a bow tie with the bakers cord and the stems attached to that. I guess I did not do a good job of pic taking, The back ground is hand painted paper. OPPOSITE PAGE IN JOURNAL: Bunny pic from the same child's book with some other decopodged paper from various books and mags.Fun springy thing to make.

MINI OLD MAID CARDS: I got a bunch of these old maid cards at WM after Christmas sale. They are 2''X 1 1/2 " I want to do some inches but find the inch is a little to small for me to work with yet. These will fit the bill perfect.

OLD MAID "INCHES" STARTED: I painted one side of the cards with gesso in this photo. I have been working on them so I have more done on them. I will post progress and finished product soon. Harder than doing large pages, trying to find smalls to put on them. WEATHER IN MELBOURNE FL: Temps cold this AM 49. Up to 70 with sunshine today!

We had rain most of the day yesterday.

I found a blog last night that is having a hand made post card swap. I think I will do it. My first swap! With altered art that is. When I had my craft room on MSN years ago we were always swapping hand crafted things. Anyway with this swap you can make the post card or alter one. I have these old Railway Express post cards that my dad had. (when post was only 3 cents) Dad worked for Railway Express. So I think I will be using these for my post card. I would like to do something beachy but don't think I have enough stuff to do that.
All for now thanks for looking
