Lost And Found

I was lost, but now am found.This is my page for the Lost and Found Soul Journaling prompt. It is well disguised, but I used part of a drink coaster from a restaurant ... I used snippets from advertisements ... the thing at the bottom with the holes is a wrist band from an event of some kind (rubberstamping convention most likely LOL) ... acorn caps ... lots of random postage stamps ... pieces of embossed wallaper ... some kind of white paper mesh used for packing paper ... a label off of a bolt (found object LOL) ... and a few pieces of negative film strip.

My page looks pretty busy LOL But it is radically different from my others and I like that. I have not yet uncovered the true meaning of my page, but perhaps that will come in time.

What a wonderful page!!! I love all the busyness, it is interesting and I love the different textures (I have the opposite problem, I am tooo scared to add too much!!! ) Love the colour too. It is wonderful that you have found yourself, I know that feeling of being lost and just know that with the help of this Soul Journal journey I will find myself too! ~HUGZ~

Hi Karen,

I LOVE your stuff! I have RSSed you and will be copying and imitating anytime soon! Hope you don't mind :o)

PS I still can't do the link thing. Where do I go to learn this stuff? Any ideas if you have the time are most welcome.

Sopped by again to read more and get another look at your lost and found page. I love all of your found items. And I especially love those little acorn caps. I really need to use more nature in my art. You have inspired me yet again!

Interesting tone in this page - it really conveys the feeling of unexpectedly fun things found.
