Every Day Road Trip…

A journal spread finally finishes off my Book of Intentions from Kelly Kilmer’s class and works for Polka dotWednesday Stamper, and the Printed WordThe Three Muses.

"Glory Union" - Road Trip

This is the complete page with tag in pocket – I stapled the adorable fabric tag to a small piece of corrugated cardboard and trimmed it to size, after covering the back of the tag too…

...stamped with a dragonfly

"PAID 15 Sep 2010"

There’s always loud, current music playing in the car when we “ride” together!!

'Time well spent with DD'

This is such a personal page for me so there’s a lot of doodles and handcarved stamps. I remember admitting to Hermine last year, that my love of clothing tags almost  tempts me to buy the outfit to get the tag – or it has done in the past!!! How daft is that? Still, it’s a useful obsession, as all my family keep their most stylish tags for me!!

Driving to and from places together is “chat time” for us. We connect in an intimate mum/daughter way and have had some of our best talks in the car. There is one thing I’m not allowed to do though – sing out loud! When “she-who-must-be-obeyed” travels with me, in my car, I merely lip-synch! Even to me, my raps sound better in my head… 😉

    These are gorgeous Rosie, you have such creative talent and I find myself coming back to look at your work time and time again. I’m glad you’ve ‘fessed up about the clothes tags, mine is the coloured ribbons from T shirts and sweatshirts ….. they are more useful to me in my art than on coat hangers. Ooooops, I didn’t mean to confess! Love that you have that relationship with your daughter. Nothing like it is there?

  12. LOL you are a gal after my own heart in more ways than I knew! Cars are meant for singing out LOUD, and they indeed are a great place for one on one’s! Your page is super Rosie! You put so much into everything you create … there is no other way … is there!
    Love it! Your book must be fantastic to sit down with!

  13. Hey there!
