More journaling, more mailbox goodies...

Here's another page spread from my *Almost Daily* Pages composition book journal. The background is gesso, then yellow acrylic on top of that, then a little azo gold glaze, then some sponge circle stamping in waterslide blue acrylic. This is about my first Moleskine purchase, and the photo of The Decorated Page book is really what made me buy since there are some Moleskine journals in it (and I plumb forgot to mention that on the page journaling, argh):

The page was done back in January (honest injun...takes me this long to do the journaling and decide when finished). But, curiously enough, I've just begun a new online workshop to study the techniques in The Decorated Page, and the journal I will use will be this Moleskine, plus another one I bought last week -- a watercolor notebook and a sketchbook, one for watercolor drawings and another for wet paint collage. More on that at another time, though...

Okay, moving right along, I wanted to show the cool tags I received in a recent tag swap in my Gluebots yahoo group. The first 3 tags were created by (in order from left to right) RJ, Jeane and Joan, our loverly swap hostess:

And these 2 tags were created by (in order, left to right) Zhulia and Linda S:

And, for my 4x6 Expressions yahoo group, here is a photo of my all-time favorite inchies stamp set that I am fortunate to own, Leave Memories Kiss-Off Cubes (RIP, LM!):

The images are so cool. I have only used them in making background papers so far, though, and am just beginning to use the papers I've made.

Until next time,
