Miss Mary Hayes Challenge

This is the result of a challenge over at Miss Mary's blog, Green Paper. She provided three images, with which we could do anything we want, we just had to use a portion of each image. Easy 'nuf! I printed them out and walked all around the house holding them up to potential recipients {canvases, paper mache' boxes, paper cones, bottles . . .} looking for good proportion, and for a project that I would like to keep. I guess you know by now that I settled on a journal. I kind of like it!

The images were; the woman, the envelope, and you can only see a bit of a floral cigarette ad inside that slide holder. While the envelope is mostly hidden behind the photograph, both are open at the top for tucking that luggage tag in. {See it? Poking out the side of the book? It's decorated, too, but it didn't apply to the challenge, so alas, I left it tucked away, under appreciated for the photo} . . .

You should stop by Mary's blog to see what everybody else has come up with! While you're at it, you can download the images for your own use . . . It's a win/win!
