give thanks - 2005

this journal page is something that i doodled the border on while waiting on raven to get out of the emergency room the evening after thanksgiving last year. she has trouble w/ "nurse-maid's elbow" and has had about 3 trips to the ER to have her arm "fixed."

the pages were already painted w/ cheap acrylic paint. the border and writing was done w/ a brown sharpie marker, and then i added the pictures in from 2005 of the people/events i was most thankful for.

Is this an altered book that you use to scrapbook or sketch in. I have be working on altering an old book to use as my sketch book for the EDM challenges. I was thinking putting a thin layer of gesso on the pages, but you have acrylic paint...How does that work for sketching? I might just have to give it a try. Thank You :-)

I love the borders and the color. It's a lot of fun to use photos. I always like looking back at them.

I think you do a great job of choosing your pics... Even though they are different sizes and brightnesses, they compliment each other and don't compete! - Sum
