More Book of Days

I'm finally posting a few more pages from my Book of Days (BODs) Altered Book/Journal that I am doing with Effy Wild. During Spring Break, I hope to have more time to get some photos posted.
Effy's challenge for this spread was to use mosaics in the background.
For this spread, I tipped in a birthday card that I received from my mother many years ago. I didn't want to lose it, so I was happy to be able to include it in my book. The trees are just looking out my window at school. That day happened to be pretty and sunny.

 This spread shows a tip in that is happy mail that I received from an online friend along with a magazine that I won in a drawing.
This is a hand drawn face from a magazine picture. I cheated and made an outline first from tracing paper, so I knew where to put the eyes, nose and mouth. I also drew the butterflies.

Just tried a lot of new things here, including using white over the doodles from Doodles Unleashed workshop by Traci Bautista.
The challenge for this page was to answer the question "What do you need to tell yourself?" and to include an envelope on the page.
This page was inspired by a picture in a flyer that came in the mail from Pier One. I really like this one. I think this takes me up through entries till the end of January. Hope to post more pictures soon.

Hope you've enjoyed looking at a few of my pages. I am having tons of fun.
