Thought this would be appropriate for Sunday, this being the front and back of one of my composition book journals. I covered these primarily with gift bags bought at the dollar store, cut up to use the different patterns and the word ANGEL on the bag. Filled in with painted book pages scraps, gold metallic tape, and on the spine, brown duct tape. The cover embellishments are a gessoed and paint washed tag made from patterned wallpaper, heart done on scrap paper, and a puzzle piece. I first saw these done by Lisa Vollrath, who generously shares so many tips at her site and who also sells some pretty cool stuff. I feel more able to play in these journals because all together they only cost me a couple of bucks or so. I also use these as notebooks for daily stuff, Bible study notes, and have made them as gifts for my dd's and their hubbies to use as a planning notebook or study notes. I need to make one for my nephew. He saw one of mine and asked for one, so if you read this Tad, I've not forgotten. He may have just been being nice, as he is like that.
Still in the middle of my work week. It's been both awful and not so bad. Found out we just had a full moon, so that may explain the busyness. It really does get crazier, sometimes literally, at a hospital when there is a full moon.
On a good note, though, I've almost shaken the cold. Still have sinus stuff but the cough has just about gone away.
