My Little Book of Thoughts…

May 12, 2009

I am not much of a jour­nal keep­er but I love hav­ing some­thing small to jot down a thought or two or make a note so I don’t for­get a moment of inspi­ra­tion or a nice quote. I think it is nice to have a lit­tle some­thing to keep my thoughts not­ed in that I can car­ry along. So this is what I decid­ed to cre­ate using the Book Page Flower from last weeks tuto­ri­als. My very own “Lit­tle Book of Thoughts”.  And I guess you can tell I am real­ly into gold and black paint with crack­ling medi­um. Just love the look so much.
