making bookmarks

there were a couple challenges this month for bookmarks.
one challenge is the theme of chickens and the other challenge is a theme for what reminds you of summertime. i have been working on some other projects and haven't had as much time to create art as i'd like.  it felt good to spend the day in the art room making things to trade.

envelope journal

i am hosting a chunky envelope journal swap. this is the first page i've done, front and back.  i took a legal sized envelope and cut it in half. each half will become a page and each half has an open side that will have an insert that can be pulled out.  the pull out must contain an uplifting word or phrase.
each page must have text, a number and something with wings.  it is proving to be a fun challenge, altho time consuming.  i can't wait to see what the finished journal will look like.

baby time

here is baby benjamin in his new summer hat.  he loves to float in the pool in his little fish life boat and of course any regular pool goer needs a big shovel brimmed hat.  i'm not too sure if he was trying to act tough or not, but he sure can give a good stink eye, can't he?  oh, he doesn't really scare us. we love him all the same!
