fran - thanks for coming to play in the crusade, and for sharing your journal pages. some great stuff here - my fave is the smeared pencil in the last one.....and i always love to see stealth-ness, hiding your pages in the envelope, cool!

Melissa S.

Fran--love the variety of ideas you share here. Especially the secret writing that is hard to read. Great way to go about it. Love the look of your Port Townsend page!


what a great post Fran! - such clarity and beautiful pages

xox - eb.

Megan Warren

great pages - my favourites are the pencil smeared one and the stealth envelope page - thanks for sharing


Fran! I love your new blog banner and the side photos of your studio. Thanks too for sharing your "take on type" : ) There is no end to what we can do is there?? I hope you are doing very well! Happy Spring!


your pages are beautiful, I adore the flow of the sand sculpting, the shapes of the stones, photographed, painted and written...

I'm torn between my love for the sand sculpture page with the big crescent, and the hidden journaling. 'Cause I wanna know what's in the pocket. :o)


Hi, Fran;
I love your use of color and of ephemera. These are really appealing. My favorite is the second one, Port Townsend. The colors and arrangement just draw me in!

Marylinn Kelly

The big crescent probably gets my favorite vote, mostly because at first glance I thought you'd done it with bead, only to return and discover the words. A great and diverse collection of examples for the Challenge.


These pages are wonderful. I love all of the unique and practical ideas, such as the envelope and the smeared text.
Thanks for the inspiration.
