Tomorrow I will be flying to Colorado to visit my son and his family in Parker CO.  My return date is December 31st!  Needless to say, I am looking forward to being there and enjoying the beautiful Colorado scenery, along with three of my grands. 

I may be able to work in my Sketchbook 2012 while there and, if so, I will post as I can.  I definitely will be able to visit some of your blogs and make comments here and there. 

Until then, take good care!

Here are the last two pages sent to Mary for her vintage gluebook page swap

This page has more of a nature theme.  An old book page, music, map, postage stamps, torn papers and a butterfly are added around the bird images.  I like the overall look of this page.

Here is the next one:

The girl's image is a copy of an old postcard I purchased in a shop on Gaylord Street in Denver, CO.  (lots of little shops to poke around in there.)  Background is a combination of paper provided by Mary in one of her online classes, an endpaper from an old Readers Digest condensed book and some snips of music.  Added the frame and butterfly to focus in on the main image. 

When Mary has received and sorted all pages, we will receive six pages from six different people.  These will be bound into the covers of a vintage book with binder rings.  Mary will also include some other vintage ephemera for our personal use.  I am excited to see the pages I will get from others!

Enjoy your day!

This vintage gluebook page features a couple on their wedding day.

I used some more wallpaper sample pieces for the background. Bits of music and old text.  In one of Mary's classes she taught us how to make our own paper by combining two or more - the butterflies and music along the right side are the result of this. 

Have a great day!
