A work in progress ...

So here we go, I took a couple of shots of one of my unfinished mini albums. It is a glimmer mist album and so far I have been working on glimmer misting, stamping and adding a few elements such as Cavalinni postcards to form the basic backgrounds on each page ... I wish you could all see the glimmer mist pages, I have used several colours and layers on each page so there is definite depth and glimmer ... sadly it's just not showing up on the photos.

A couple of people have asked me what this album is for, or about, and I never seem to be able to explain it correctly ... So here it is ... the working title is "When I See Paris" ... and it is going to be journaling heavy. and no, it's not based a planned trip to Paris or my desire to see Paris, rather it is snippets of my daydreams and thoughts about Paris ... it isn't a what if ... rather, it is me, there, in my imagination and wanderings.

I will be adding photos of myself ... maybe others ... and I am seriously considering handstamping all of the journaling ... I have these little tiny Fontwerks alpha rubber stamps that might just be perfect ... I'm still thinking on that aspect ... so that's where this album is at ... the others are much simpler and hopefully they will be finished this weekend.


I used a Tim Holtz stamp and one of his ornate plates on this background ... totally cool stuff!


I love the glimmer mist on this page ... I was going for a sheets of rain effect ...

As always, thanks for stopping by ... and geez, i seriously need a groovy tag line ... :)
