My House, in the middle of my street

Hi again!  Long time no post - altho I have been making stuff.  Here's something I made for a new calendar/art journal (because New Year means New Projects, right?!)

That's my front door, and my cutie lil' pup! It's done in fabric, and the photo is digitally printed on linen.  Lots of sweet vintage trims and bits, which always gives me a little thrill to use.  Knowing a fabric or bit of lace is 50 or 100 years old, and is still here being loved and used by someone makes me feel connected to the larger world somehow.

 I've started two weekly journal prompt groups, Life Book and The Documented Life Project.  I'm just kinda squishing them together, and hoping my short attention span lasts through the year with at least one of them.    This was the prompt from Documented Life, which was to use your front door.

Does it look like that's a sun in the upper left?  I might need to add some rays to it.....

  1. Hi Kat. I like your sweet journal cover. I can identify with your thoughts on using precious bits. Charlotte
