Round Robin

At long last I have managed to do my first page of Astrids Round Robin journal. I have had a very rough month, and just haven't had the time or the inspiration to do this. I thought it would be a good idea to do one to remember our childhood. So ladies, please can you all put pictures of yourselves as children/baby. The title is When you were Young, and you can use any colour you are happy with.

My first attempt, which will be my cover I did in Autumn colours, and it was very textured. I think it would suffer in the post, so will keep it safely at home. I will put a picture on here as soon as I've finished it. Please don't hold your breath though.

After my first attempt, I decided to put a bit of colour in this one, so the background is inked and stamped. The swirls are Grunge board, and then various images put on. I have always loved birds, so a few of those flew on, plus some small buttons and a metal butterfly. The buttons by the way didn't fly on by themselves, I had to do that. The back I covered with paper and added my favourite blue poppies and another bird.

I am not really sure that I like it that much, but it will have to do.

I like your page even if you don't, and I'm sure I've got a few pictures of me as a little girl SOMEWHERE in the house(I'll have to get searching)!
