My claim to book was published in the book shown here. :-)

This is one of 3 things I have had published. :-) It didn't hurt that Sue is my friend. But to give myself some credit, I did submit this book and it was not only accepted for the publication, it was actually on the cover! I have been very flattered by this. Now that I have a blog, I figure I might as well post it. :-) Also posted are a few of the inside pages. I still have a lot of work to do on this book, but have had Much fun collecting things to put In it. :-)

12 Days of Christmas Swap-CC Swaps

This is a journal I made for a "12 Days of Christmas" swap. The covers are painted with golden fluid acrylic paints, then textured by either removing paint with a cosmetic sponge & sequin waste, or adding additional paint with textured wallpaper. The image is a transparency transfer as well as the words. I bound them with the Bind it All which I just Love!

The top 2 pictures are of the front & back, the bottom 2 are the inside of the back and the inside of the front covers.
