Van Gogh Girl 8x8's...




This is the last round for my "color me silly" yahoo groups altered round robin...This artists theme for her book was "open"...she just wanted vintage something. My friend Cathy had sent me a little art box and it included some Van Gogh dresses so I went with that. I really enjoyed working with the cooler colors and there is a whole lot of texture on these pages and that is my big thing...We always include a tag and mine is an accordian tag that is tied on the page with a ribbon. My altered recipe book is almost complete and man, is it a stunner! I will have to show it off when I get it all put together. This is our second year and our second books. I am wondering if there is going to be another round? The OWOH giveaway is almost over...if you have a blog and would like to sign up, feel free to do so. I think today I hit 200 entries, which I am pretty excited about...Especially being stuck kind of in the middle of the list. I have made some friends and found some new blogs to drool over and shoot, I may just win something too...

You make the most beautiful things. I like the color scheme. Blue being one of my favorite colors, and all. :) I especially love the buttons on the leaves... you know my fetish with buttons. lol.
