Aren't these faces and ink stains wild? Thanks to Elaine at Tapeswell (www.tapeswell.com) who sent me a box of samples to try out...my mothers day was filled with such fun! These are decorative tapes that come in rolls like packing tape...and have endless possibitlities. I love using them in altered books since they provide a dry way to attach items. Speaking of altered books, I am gettiing ready for the Saturday workshop in Longmont (Barbed Wire Books) with many of the ABCD's (altered book club divas) - can't wait! There is only one spot left if you are interested....

Last week I followed my son's Constitutional Law team to DC and found five days of (what I call) "adventure journal" time! Heading in the metro to un-known spots, finding perfect benches & perfect boats, perfect bakeries and a perfect paper store. Here is a two page spread of little sketches - the left side was from a boat trip on the Potomac, the right incoporated my CO name tag with a live Sting concert playing in the background. (He was on the mall for an earth day protest). All I needed was an iced coffee, a bench and a moment to capture - it was heaven!!I can't wait to organize an adventure journal trip to NY; although cancelled for this June I am hoping to get a group together to share the fun in the fall.
