Wonder art journal and a shell
after photographing my pages I noticed that the right hand page needed one small detail added for my second entry in Art Journal Journey’s “Collage”  theme

    And the Socrates quote is wonderful… I think that is it!
    I often say :
    you shouldn’t let it annoy you – just be surpirsed about it.

    That’s also the way to wisdom and peace I think…lol!

  17. so many wonderful things I could talk about on this two page spread, including how lovely the TAP image turned out. I’ve yet to try the product, but when you use it, I’m always impressed by the results you get. I’m sure I had seen your origami dresses before, but for some reason, this one looked so different, yet familiar. Maybe it was the hemline.

    I can’t say enough about this spread, other than I truly love it.
