Life Book!

"The Universe Conspires"
9 x 12 LB Journal Page
(Lesson 6)

I know. I Know. It's been forever since I've posted a page from Life Book. Truth is, I've watched every one of the 11 week's worth of art and inspiration, but I haven't made much of a move beyond that. Until today. I started playing catch-up by doing Tam's beautiful lesson on paint overs . . . .

We were first asked to create a 9 x 12 collage using images that speak to us. Our intention was to create a page for our Life Book journal that would celebrate an accomplishment in our lives. My initial layer looked like this:

Collage made with various decorative papers, storybook images and glossy magazines.

"Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen"
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Next LB stop: Tam's "Celebrating the impact you've had on others" (with photo altering) . . . 

Wish me luck,
Kristin xo
