like a dream…

Magpie's Nest Patty Szymkowicz DREAM art journalstill inspired by Erika’s JOURNEYS theme at Art Journal Journey I created a spread in a “dream” art journal that I started in January 2015…Magpie's Nest Patty Szymkowicz Dream suppliesa trip to my favorite papercraft store in nearby Clifton got me playing with a new butterfly stamp and some silver gilding flakes (Elizabeth that is the La Blanche stamp I mentioned to you)…

  3. I love this page Patty. But then I love most of your pages. And how fun to go to your paper craft store and get a few new toys. My local-ish store went out business and now I only have the big box stores around. You got some of the fun things I would like too. I hope her dream journey was as good as your final page looks. Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika

  9. new supplies are always so fun aren’t they? How do you like Dina’s paints? I haven’t tried them. Beautiful journal spread and I just LOVE the photo of La Petite Vigne! Just spent 1/2 hr or so taking my hubby along on your trip thru France via your posts. He says he’s ready to go again:) And he wanted me to tell you what a great eye you both have for “framing out” your magnificent photos-really impressive! Happy weekend 🙂

  13. Just another example of how you look at stamps in a very different and unique way, I see a butterfly, you see wings. You manage to get a lot of mileage out of your stamps because you see them in a different way,

    Even though I love this piece for its beauty and charm, I love it even more because of the way you always think outside the box.

    BTW, that LaBlanche stamp is a beauty, and I bet it stamped perfectly the first time, too.

  15. What a lovely post. I really like your new stamp and it works perfectly with this beautiful journal page. You can never have enough butterfly stamps, I feel. They all have a different kind of beauty. I don’t know why, but these pages remind me of a book I read many, many years ago. I loved it, but I don’t want to read it again now in case that spoils the spell it created for me all those years ago – I prefer the memory of it in my imagination. It was called ‘Le grand Meaulnes’ or ‘The Lost Domain’. Have a lovely Sunday. xxx
