4.21.11 ... fodor's france 1975 repurposed


i have been reducing my paper inventory, going through various books and magazines and whatever other odd papers i have collected and taking out the pieces that drew me to the books in the first place. this book is very cool, but no one can (or will) use a travel guide book that is 35 years old. but there are some adorable images i had to save for later resurrection. aren't these irresistible? the idea of hand tearing them instead of using scissors came to me when i started on the region illustrations ...


... these are so groovy and i plan to assemble them into a vintage coloring packet. these are perfect for coloring ~ which i find relaxing and comforting ~ and framing. i got out some watercolors to demonstrate one concept. i started on the picture below but had to turn it over to scout because i was needed in the scullery. :) she did a super job...


i just think these are such fun. i hope your thursday was a happy one. i have been in a funk today for many reasons. such is life. sometimes it seems like all the doors are closing and we're in a time warp waiting for the windows to open. the doors are gaining on me this week. here's to a better tomorrow. come on windows.

sweet dreams, everyone. thanks for stopping by. until tomorrow. happiness to you. from me. with heart. ox joon
