a little play time ...

I had time to play with some wonderful friends last week ... I started in on my new mixed media project ... a little book that i think i will call "empress jo's book of faeries" ... (the nick name was given to me by a good friend.)

I am altering an existing book, and it's my first time doing this so i am crossing my fingers that it will go well.  I am trying to marry a couple of my favourite things, mainly vintage, faeries and mixed media ... it's definitely a work in progress ....


It is always so much fun to craft with friend ... especially when we are enjoying a wee tipple of sherry after lunch! you can see my work in progress at the bottom of the photo.
 Sue makes the most wonderful cards ... so fab to see her in her creative zone!
My first page, finished .... I also did this page for an art journalling challenge ... the theme was "up, up and away" ... I used a vintage faerie image ...
My second page has a completely different tone ... when i saw this vintage image I thought that she must be high society ... yet very forlorn ...  no theme here, just my own tongue in cheek narrative ...
Thank you for taking the time to stop by for a peek!  You comments are always cherished!

peace, love and paper!!!

Your work is wonderful. I haven't altered a book in quite a while and I'm not sure why since I think it's wonderfully creative and lots of fun.
