My Books Are Like Gold : Mixed Media Art Journal Layout
Summer is finally here and the children are out of school. I am developing a routine for our days so we have some sense of accomplishment. Along with weekly library visits, we are observing a daily reading time. I will also have plenty of time to read while poolside so I am picking out my summer reads. Recently, I found a few new authors that I enjoyed so I thought I would share them with you in case your are looking for something good to read.
The first author is Juliet Marillier. She writes historical fantasy fiction mostly based on fairy tales with a lot of story telling. I loved these two novels but it was a rough start. I found that minimal distractions were the key to enjoying this author.
Vilette by Charlotte Bronte was a fabulous read but I warn you, the ending is unexpected.
Nancy Demoss Wolgemuth is a woman’s radio speaker. I have enjoyed many of her books but this one was the best. A very encouraging read.
Creating the Layout
I just love these Egyptian stamps by Lynne Perrella for PaperArtsy. The gold Fresco Finish paint is my favorite touch to glamour up these images.
I layered some book paper, fiber, thread and tea bags behind the stamped images.
Today is T day and I am playing along with the ladies over at Elizabeth and Bleubeard. I am sharing a White Green Pear tea today. I have shared this before but it is so yummy that I save it for special times when I need to relax. I love that you can see the rosebuds and the various colors of the leaves.
Happy Tea Day,
