I've got a lovely potpouri to share today. First, a cool new inspiration site, if color turns you on:
I subscribe to them by email, so every day I get a set of 4 color combo photos like the one above. I save them into a folder and it's nice to open the folder up like a closet door and look at all the cool color "outfits". My fantasy is to have all my supplies just colored-grouped (paper, brads, paint, glitter, all of one color in one group), cuz tht is where it starts and ends for me...with color.

I've long admired my friend Carmen's paper-collaged journals. Kept telling myself, I'm gonna try that and see if I enjoy it, because what a way to use up the scrapbook paper! (Cardstock, not so much, but thinner papers, look out!) And, I found out that it's not that easy to do but not so hard, and it is relaxing to do. As this page is in my lettering journal, I'm now thinking I will do pages like this intermittently throughout it, while I see just how much of it will be used for my lettering. Peruse a little lettering, then a little collage, yadayada, etc.
Now, do you see my interest in the design seeds? Color combo ideas for the pages! haha
