Letter to Former Self - A Challenge

12.12.2007


This layout was done for this week's effer dares. You were to write a letter to your former self. The photo is of a statue that sits on the steps leading to my dad's studio (I took it over our thanksgiving visit) and I thought it would be perfect for this layout.
Journaling reads:
At this rate I will never catch up to who I was or where I am. Do you not see that I am everywhere, promised...

That is why I've gone. Let me fall completely and slowly you will see that I am really not falling at all and that I am only just waking.

The white viney leaves are rub-ons by Tinkering Ink and I stamped over them with a smaller leafy imaged stamp which I dipped in orange paint, really like how it turned out. A great thoughtful page for my journal anyways.

Thank you for the post on my blog too! I love your work as well. Your book is absolutely beautiful -- your little girl too.

You asked where I got the red numbers and the circle tags. The red circle tags are from www.everyjotandtittle.etsy.com and the red numbers are Basic Grey's chipboard numberpile (I painted them red); I think I bought the chipboard from www.scrapbook.com. Thanks again for checking out my blog!
