Full spread!


I LOVE how my flippy floppy book opens up. I just love how I can use 4 pages with a similar theme or color scheme. I will definitely be making another one of these books.

I just finished reading Mockingjay. The first two books in the series were super good. This one I was just ready for it to be done at the end. I'm not sure how they are going to make it into a movie.. I feel this one was way more violent and gruesome.  Towards the end of the series it was super depressing to read.  If you have elementary school kids, did you let your kids see the first movie? I think the themes in the first one were of course violent and scary, but they did a good job of not showing a lot of gore. I asked the kids in 5th/6th grade if they had seen the movie and it was split. Some of the parents took their kids to the movie and others felt they were too young to see it.  I thought the Hunger Games movie was very good, but I don't know how kids would handle it.

love the journal fold out too-I agree about mockingjay. I read the frist three and was shocked to at the violence. I found them very disturbing. So much violence in the world already....take care

These are beautiful, love them so much! Your faces are so delicate and the colors are also very vibrant. It's nice to virtually meet you :-D Very glad you enjoyed the I.A. Postcard. I don't usually do much collage, but collaging and piecing together how various drawings of mine could work for the challenge was a lot of fun and I'm glad made you happy <3
