  2. Because this journal has been going for so long it will be a beautiful record for you to go back to. I wonder if you are noticing that your work or your style has changed over the years?

  4. Gorgeous pages. I love the 2 partial faces. I am still amazed how partial images sometimes say so much more than full images. Have a great weekend.

  5. Looking back on the pages you created in the past is always fun. I know I do that in my 7 continents AB. Of course, I’ve never created anything as lovely as what you make. I’m always, ALWAYS impressed when I peruse your ABs.

  11. THERE you are!!! I was thinking you hadn’t posted for awhile and suddenly, lo! – you appeared in my reader. I see that I’ve missed a lot, so, rather than inundating you with comments, I’ll just jump in here. I love the quote in the last picture.

  12. Such beautiful blues. This spread is truly lovely, Patty. How exciting to have been creating journal pages since 2008 in this little book. I wish I could flip through the pages and share all the beautiful entries. It must be such a pleasure to go back through it. xxx

  18. It makes me smile, seeing your fat, chunky dictionary filled with creative goodness. (That was almost a typo — godness. But I suppose they both have some application!)

  20. Using a newspaper image in that fashion is brilliant. I’d have never guessed if you hadn’t said. I too have some really old journals that I’m still plugging away at from time to time. I’m glad I started dating my pages now since I’m working in such a random way. 🙂 Wish I had from the beginning.

  23. Great idea to use a newspaper image and paint it, including giving the girl a new patterned blouse. The left side is lovely all by itself and the strip of musical yellow at the top gives the whole picture an unusual look.
