I was doing a cleaning up on my camera's memory stick and I found these pictures. How could I have forgotten to post about Penny's Journal? Well, better late than never right?
Penny wanted everyone to create a sea themed page. You know I loved this one! So I dove right for my favorite images from Alpha Stamps, these images are from the Caribbean Blue Mermaids Collection.
I was not and still am not pleased with how the background color turned out. I was trying to match the color in the images but never got it quite right.
I love it when I can use things that have been sent to me by group members. The Glittered Swirls were a gift to me by our fearless leader.
I made a few seam binding flowers, using real shells for the centers. You can purchase seam binding in my Etsy store.
To complete my page I added some stones, leaf ribbon and a few paper fish.
We've already started our next journal rotation. Mine isn't much to look at yet. This year I decided to create a shadow box that everyone could add to.
I didn't do anything real artistic, just added the paper, ribbon and these flowers which I did age a bit. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone adds and what direction this goes.
