There's something so satisfying about putting together a blank album at the start of a project. I'm going to follow along with Shimelle's class "Learn Something New Everyday." Last time, I did a series of mixed media ATC's. This year I'm going to focus on journaling, accented with rubber stamped images. I started with a stack of 4.5"x6.5" colored chipboard pieces and some Basic Grey paper scraps. I edged everything with ink and assembled. Keeping it simple this year and looking forward to it.
Meanwhile, I received this wonderful blog award from a few friends. Thank you so much! The award asks me to list three things about myself and post a favorite picture.
1. My current favorite band is The Avett Brothers. Great lyrics and interesting blend of upbeat and folk. I also really like Michael Franti.
2. I don't read much, and I watch a ton of television. This summer I did read The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked over the Hornet's Nest, Heart in the Right Place (a great memoir), Breath, and (currently) Await Your Reply.
3. I have traveled all over the world: El Salvador; Ireland; Scotland; Wales; London; Paris; Rome; Milan; Bellagio; Budapest; Vienna; Venice; Prague; Canada; Hong Kong; Beijing; and most of the 50 states. I really want to go to Greece, Australia and New Zealand. I just learned that next summer we're planning to travel to Puebla, Mexico.
Now for a favorite picture:
This is one of my favorite from pictures from our trip to Venice and my blog friend Mel asked me to post one.
I'm also supposed to pass the award along to five friends, but I fear that most of my blog friends have already been tagged on this one. So, I'm going to pass on that part of the award.
Thanks again for the acknowledgement!
