The Raven

This journal page was dedicated to the masterpiece poem The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe.  I loved working with the black and white and it's just perfect for this time of the year.  "Nevermore" - well maybe I will again.  Diane

Tatum's Book

Shhh! Don't tell anybody.  This is my a book I made for my little great grandson, Tatum, who's going on 3.  It will be his Christmas gift.   A few posts back I did some tags and ATCs out of this circus paper and I finished using it in his book.  It's made from a board book from Salvation Army and there are about 6 pages in it.  I recovered all the pages and painted the cover with acrylic paints and acrylic spray.  Some of the images I cut out of Victoria Trading Company catalogs - the seals and pony shown here.  Do you think he'll like it?  I know I sure had fun making it for him.    Diane

One Form of Prayer

 When my mind is racing 100 miles per hour and I can't seem to focus on anything my fingers take over.  With glue, sticky tape, pens, scissors and papers they create something good, a gift maybe.  This is a book I created for probably my little great grandson as I prayed for my daughter, Catherine.  I have quiet time with the Lord but I also have this manic time. 
This is one of the inside pages.   My fingers continue to create madly as I pray.      Diane
