Glue Book on the Go

Well, I am not getting into my craft room nearly as much as I would like, and when I'm in there, I'm cleaning!  Luckily, I still have my vintage train trunk full of scraps that I take with me in the car.  I tend to work with nature themes a lot, and so the next few pages I decided to try to combine a bunch of this sort of image.  For this layout, I also happened upon a few scraps that fit together beautifully - completely serendipitously.  It's so fun when you find the perfect combination in your stash!
For the right-hand side of the layout, I discovered two clock images that fit together rather nicely.  I used them to highlight the fairy image (a leftover if a Craft Individuals image stamped on a glimmer misted background).

On the left side, I found two butterfly images that fit together - a stamped image and an image on a scrap of patterned paper.

Another couple of nature themed pages - these with a "field notes" kind of a feel.  The large bird image is from an old Christmas season bag from Pottery Barn.


Finally, one last Halloween page that I forgot to post.  I love this one, because I happened to find a piece of vintage sheet music that had the lyrics "name a spell" on them.... a perfectly witchy little tune, I think. ;)
That's all for now.  Got to get cleaning!

Bonsoir, Jean, I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog -- so thought it only right to reciprocate and of course, I can't stop reading. LOVE this journal. I like the way you refer to a collage coming together serendipitously. I find that I fight with myself asking "is this too much," "is it finished yet"?? I need more of that serendipity:)
