I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Take a leaf out of my book...

Hello all!  Thanks for stopping by today.  You won't be here for long as it's just a sneak peek (seems a long time since we had one of those at Words and Pictures).  I'm over at A Vintage Journey today sharing my take on the contents of this month's travel bag at Destination Inspiration.


It's an altered notebook, my first creation back in my (somewhat chaotic) craft room, and I rather like it, though I do say so myself!  I hope you'll be able to hop over and take a look.  And in the meantime, I need to do some more unpacking, sorting and then repacking for a week of work and play away from home.  No rest for the wicked, they say...

A room without books is like a body without a soul.

Went and had a gander at this lovely decayed altered notebook and I so enjoy when you do the darker spectrum with the Q gold and the yummy layers of colors. Beautiful leaves and beautiful layering of the papers. Such a lovely transformation of the black notebook. Hugz! ~Niki
