Louise playing in Pam's Teesha journal.

I was thrilled when mum sent me her journal from round 4
 as I love theme and I wanted a good sticky beak 
at all the lovely pages done by everyone. 

We are very close and love to live near each other
 but I live in hot humid Grafton 
and they cant cope with the weather 
so they live hundreds of km away in the central west.

But mum loves Grafton and the jacarandas 
so I wanted to do a page about Grafton and of course 
it had to be purple

Working in Teesha style to me means bright and busy
 with lots to look at,
 colourful borders, interesting words 
and unexpected quirky characters. 

So my jacaranda queens
 are not quite like any I have seen at festival time
 but they sure were fun to create. 

The next page I created was inspired by bugs- 
its summer time here and they are loving
 all the heat and rain we have had lately. 

Mum had 4 pages left and generously said I could play in all of them :) 
So I unearthed so much 'stuff'
you know all of that stuff we hoard for art?
This style of journalling is really good for using it all up. 

My girlfriend Kathy visited Paris a couple of years ago
 and shared some of the incredible exhibitions
 she saw with me through photos and bought back flyers and catalogs. 

So these pages are about Picasso and Paris as an armchair traveler.

As I was making my way through the piles of above mentioned stuff
 I came across some fashion mags. 
They have fabulous fonts and great imagery
 but I was a bit upset at the extravagance
 of it all and this page became a bit of a rant. 

I saw all of these shoes and shoes and shoes
 and knew I had a fabulous big die cut 
somewhere so they formed the basis of my last pages. 

However I was shocked at the ridiculousness of it all
the prices!
and where could you even wear them?

So many ways in my opinion that could better use those dollars. 

I should also say I own very few shoes 
and the most expensive are my well worn,
 paint splattered  redback work boots.
