Laura and Trish's entries for Marilyn's Alphabetica Journal

Our Alphabetica journal project continues!!! I believe it started around March 2006. I think we are about halfway through. Here are the entries from myself and Trish for Marilyn's journal. Marilyn is the leader of the project, and we are so thankful for her patience and guidance! We have met so many talented and lovely women through this project!

Marilyn's journal is called Alpha Muse. She had a bunch of different words in the front of the journal. We were instructed to pick one and use that as our starting point. I picked "1910." For my pages I used some vintage looking scrapbook paper, vintage buttons, vintage patterns, and some lovely images from a 1911 Ladies Home Journal. Oh, and the ever popular (to me at least) rub-ons!
Trish picked the word "Wings." See her very cool interpretation below in the next two photos. I love her use of images of flowers and butterfly wings interspersed with photos!!!
Aren't these pages totally lovely????
Well, I am off to try and finish Harry Potter tonight! I want to be able to talk to two of my friends who have finished it already! (Hi Noreen in California!! Hi Kim in Ohio!!!)

Both are totally LOVELY entries into Marilyn's journal!! I really enjoyed the size of the pages...got me out of my comfort zone and that is a good thing! BTW, you can also talked to me about HP! Finished it a week or so ago and loved it! Kinda sad it is over though.
