I was on a bit of a creative roll after doing Gina's ATC so I thought I'd seize the day and get going on Suki's journal which arrived yesterday.
I started with some wonderful textured paper that has been put away for years. I 'Googled' raven images (of course!) and came across this wonderful Celtic design that I 'borrowed.' If the artists name was available I'd give proper credit.
I glued the raven and started embellishing the edges of both sections with scrolls in aqua and purple. I then spotted these sweet tags I bought on Etsy a while back and inserted one in a little atc bag that I also embellished with doo-dads. On the back of the tag I wrote "May your travels take you to your heart's desire."
I also glued a fotune on the page that says "The greatest gift of all mistakes is to do nothing because you think you can only do a little."
On the next page is that lovely raven. I drew in snowy hills, bare trees and a full winter moon. I wrote "Gently falling snow, guide Raven home."
I also found a line I cut out of a magazine a while ago that says "find your happy place and just be."
I finshed it off with glitter for the snow.
Now it will be on it's way to Soulbrush for her magical touches!
This was such fun for me. I hope you like it Suki!
