Irene's RR Journal

Last week I met my friend Michele who is also in the RR that I am participating in at Starbuck's.  She had to pass off Irene's journal to me.  I had done some shopping earlier in the day and found the greatest tissue paper with chili peppers on it and I also found some great poppy napkins.  That very same afternoon I started working in Irene's journal.  Irene lives in California, hence chili peppers and poppies seemed appropriate.  Fast forward to the weekend and I went garage sale-ing.  I found the best old calendar with Japanese woodblock prints.  Irene is Japanese-American, perfect I thought.  So here in her dos-a-dos journal is what I have come up with in rather short order.  I had the whole month of June to complete it and it is already done and posted by June 2!  Enjoy Irene!

Amazing finds! Love those figures and I hope she can tell us what the text means... I'm sure she'll be pleased with this.

Oh John, this is spectacular! Irene is so lucky and she will be thrilled no end! Your colors are perfection and the overall composition is perfect in my opinion. As far as being finished on June 2nd ... that's both incredible and inspiring!

John!!! I love what you created and cannot wait until August to hold it in my hands. I know that it will be even more luscious in person. It gave me a big smile right away. Thank you!
