Vale's cj June 2010


my first foray into the GPP Street Team realm. this is still in Vale's journal, but it also qualifies for the Grid Lock theme Michelle Ward put on the Street Team page this month. since this bunch of 8 tags, i have made 17 more of this size and 9 of a size i hand cut to fit in a local partnership journal i am doing. last night as i was telling my non-artist sister how many tags i've done lately i was sort of wondering what i am going to do with them all. a few minutes ago i was walking past the pile (which i found fibers for last night) and realized that i could totally use it as a journal. i can use an O-ring to put them together and journal on the backs of them. i am/have been pretty rigid in my what-is-a-journal-and-what-is-not-a-journal thoughts for a loooooooong time. i am 51, i can branch out now and not be considered a crazy, rash youngster, so i just may do it. woo! anyway, these tags had their bottoms cut off so they would fit in the grid background and, of course, i have the pieces to be used in other stuff or maybe make tiny tags out of. these tags are glued down and not easily removable from the spread. it was fun fun fun. i've been having a blast using up snippets of 'stuff' i've been collecting for-ev-er.

this is lovely! all the tags and pockets do certainly fit the grid theme! I'm in love with the colors! So many things to do and only so many minutes in a day...sigh

I love this as well. The colors are warm and there's a soothing unity to your gridlock. I sooooo get the wanting to push the boundries--I trying to climb out of my artbox head. Pushing 50 too and want to break all the rules. Lovely work!!

Snippets are the best! it's amazing to me how handy are for being "just the right thing"!
