Learn To Fly - Journal Page

Good morning!

I was tossing and turning all night and finally gave up at 5:00 am... today is the day!  In three short hours, the first class with Tim Holtz will be starting! Can you tell I'm a tad excited? (such a geek)  Today we'll be doing the metal heart and patchwork pandemonium... bring it on!

Wanted to share a journal page I did during my recovery time off from work...

Went with song lyrics again for the journaling... one of my favorite songs of all time... Blackbird by The Beatles.  Classic.  Page was done Teesha Moore style - painted background, collage border from magazine pages, and the collaged bird / wings / hat.  The wings are actually fins from a whale that I cut down.  And of course... all birds need a hat (right Dyan?) 

I'm off to pack my lunch, shower, and make myself presentable! I'll try to post pix on Twitter / Instagram (@ellenvargo on Twitter).

Have a great day!
