It's time for a change; it's time to grow. This blog is one step that will encourage me to explore, experiment, and share my journey. But the primary element in my growth is the inspiration of my talented friends.

Pauline's IT girl ... Woman booklet
The Art Ventures group has an IT GIRL swap. For the month of January Pauline is IT. She chooses a theme and the rest of us playing in this swap create an item on that theme. Some time ago I had purchased these blank matchbooks so I decided to use one to make Pauline a 'Woman booklet'. There are 6 page in the booklet... here's what I did with it.....
Here is the finished matchbook with the cover closed. I attached decorative paper to the outside of the booklet. Pauline likes purple so that became my primary color throughout the booklet.
After applying 2 colors of distress inks, using the blending foam pads, I stamped images of women on the cover and each of the page fronts.
On the backs of each page I placed a quote relevant to women. I typed them up and printed them on purple vellum.
