Sunflower Seed Packet

“There is no exquisite beauty...
without some strangeness in the proportion.”
Edgar Allan Poe

Do you name your pages? I do only to have a way to "refer" to them on the blog or in my mind. So this is "the one with the sunflower seed packet" only because that was there before it had the photo of the horse. It's basically a grid, and you know how I love grids, of all sorts of photos {printed on the polaroid pogo instant printer}, stamps, washi tape, neocolors, wrappers, found papers, clippings of abstract painted pages, maps, etc. all on a background "bed" of turquoise and violet acrylics. These pages are from the hardback I'm altering into an art journal called the noticing journal. Oh! And I took a photo of another page from this book, pulled it into photoshop and pumped up the vibrancy, then printed on the pogo printer and stuck it on this page. The cool thing about the pogo is that the paper has an peel-off adhesive backing.

I LOVE sunflowers! Does the packet still have seeds in it?

Stargirl - We actually planted the seeds in little pots last year, but they didn't grow:(.

We just planted sunflowers on the weekend! And I just stuck my empty packet in my journal. I name my pages for ease of identification sometimes, other times because a name actually came to me for a spread.

Wonderful pages, love all the little treasures. Mine are feeling much too simple these've inspired me!

I love the turquoise and violet background. Fun stuff. I'm interested in the Polaroid instant printer. I think I could have lots of fun with that!
