|Seeded Journal 2 - 10|
I like the fact that the bee is in this collage. Their movement is so graceful and it resembles a dance.

The background papers are a combination of found ephemera and papers I created and then worked on in iColorama. The little girl is either afraid of rabbits or she has not seen it yet and will stop crying once she has.

This page will be folded in half and will become the center page of my latest seed journal. I will explain more about the seed journal as I share the pages. I really like how this one turned out.
I received an ATC in a fabric/paper envelope a few months ago. The ATC was sewn into the envelope. On the paper side was my address and a bit of other things.....stamp, return address, etc. I added this envelope to my seeded journal. The post office added the white strip. I also added the portrait. It is a three way collaboration....Elsa, post office, and me.
|Drescher 10 - The Bath|
I made a mistake when I did the stamping of the word 'bath'. Drescher would have said cover it up with something else and/or then do it over again. I thought about what I might put over the lettering but then I thought of keeping it just as is. The jury is out.
I have not been as tired as I was yesterday after a long day of activities in a long time. I totally forgot to blog. I am catching up this morning though.
|Drescher 07 - inevitable|
|Drescher 06 - To Bee|
In my Drescher journal I added part of a posted envelope adhering it in with staples. I had a focal point on this page but I like the female bicyclist better. One has to be able to give up when collaging.
|Drescher 04 - Rabbit|
|Drescher 02 - Attitude|
The type of book that was created is called a Seeded Notebook. One randomly adheres ephemera down on a piece of watercolor paper. Then the paper is folded several times and you get the pages for the book. One never really knows what will turn up on each page. Once the book is sewn you can then start adding more ephemera. The page above is incomplete. I have only added three things....the grey flower; the stamped letters; and the French sentence. Once the book is complete I will share it on this blog. It is a fun, fun, fun process.
It just seems like this woman is out for a summer afternoon perhaps meeting friends or out with a special beau. It was a gorgeous day here today and I was out riding my new e-bike. Just a perfect day!
I spent a great deal of today looking for images. I found Accordion Man on a vintage matchbox. I had the background done some time ago and it all just came together rather quickly once I had my focal image.

I am always surprised after I finish an ATC. They actually come together quite quickly. The last two elements were the geisha and the dog.
